Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 6:00 PM for a reading of her new book! A signing follows at Brookline Booksmith.

Press Release:

When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids. The internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growth—finding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Now Felicia’s world is filled with creativity, video games, and a dash of feminist activism—just like her memoir. Showcasing Felicia’s hilarious and unique voice, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.

This event will take place at the Coolidge Corner Theatre and requires tickets, which are $5 each, or free with the purchase of You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) from Brookline Booksmith. After the reading, a book signing will take place at Brookline Booksmith, and all are welcome to attend.

Tickets available at the link! Tickets are SOLD OUT for this event but there will be a standby line at the theater and a free signing afterwards at the store!
