Lindy West in Conversation with Hannah McGregor

Tuesday, December 3 at 8pm at The Vogue Theatre

Event Summary

Lindy West has become a household name for her fierce, funny and forthright analyses of contemporary culture. The Washington Post has praised West for “[defying] clichés both by being persistently hilarious and deeply loving.” On December 3, she shares her newest book, The Witches Are Coming, with professor and Secret Feminist Agenda host Hannah McGregor for an electric conversation on feminism, misogyny and meme culture in our precarious political moment.

About Lindy West

Lindy West is an opinion writer for the New York Times. She is the author of the award-winning memoir Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman – a NYT bestseller and Esquire, NPR, LA Times and Newsweek best book of the year – and the executive producer of its acclaimed Hulu adaptation. West's work has been published in outlets including The Daily Telegraph, GQ, Jezebel, Vulture and The Guardian, and explores topics including pop culture, social justice, humour and body image. She lives in Seattle.

About The Witches Are Coming

The Witches Are Coming is a wickedly funny, razor-sharp and unapologetically feminist series of essays. Equally witty and wise, West exposes the cultural narratives that led to #MeToo, the rise of Trumpism and white entitlement. The Witches Are Coming is a reckoning, turning a mirror on our society’s most damaging ideas – in order to explore how we resist them. Praised by Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and NYT bestselling author of Full Front Feminism Jessica Valenti, The Witches Are Coming has been named a fall must-read by Bustle, TIME, Bookriot, USA Today and more.

About Hannah McGregor

Hannah McGregor is an Assistant Professor of Publishing at Simon Fraser University, a feminist podcaster, and a CanLit killjoy. She co-hosts the popular Harry Potter podcast Witch, Please, and hosts the slightly less popular podcast Secret Feminist Agenda, a weekly discussion of the insidious, nefarious, insurgent and mundane ways we enact our feminism in our daily lives. She lives in Vancouver on the territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, and has two cats; one is named after a poet, and the other is named after a breakfast.
