New and notable: Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein

We've all been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Carrie Brownstein's new memoir, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, and it's finally here! And, if you haven't already heard, we have an event with Brownstein coming up very soon—on Monday, November 16th at the Ukrainian Federation! Find the details below.

Carrie Brownstein is the guitarist in pioneering rock band Sleater-Kinney and the creator/co-star of the wildly popular television show Portlandia. Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl (Riverhead Books) is Brownstein's debut. It's a candid, funny, and deeply personal look at making a life—and finding yourself—in music. Browstein writes about escaping her turbulent family life by plunging into the indie music scene, where she was able to find the means for self-invention. She captures the experience of coming into her own as a driven female performer in the 90s, and finding community in the then-burgeoning world of underground feminist punk-rock.

Brownstein will be in conversation with Jessica Hopper, senior editor at Pitchfork and author of The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic (Featherproof Books).
