Join us in the Rare Book Room for an evening with real-life best friends, bestselling authors, and Crappy Friends podcast co-hosts Kristan Higgins and Joss Dey! Their weekly show discusses toxic female friendships, how to deal and ditch your crappy friend, how to avoid making the same mistakes twice and how to create the kind of friendships that make life fun.
For the first time, they are taking the podcast LIVE—with some special guests—and celebrate the release of Life and Other Inconveniences, Kristan’s latest novel, with an in-person discussion about those all too familiar feelings of discontent with friends and family.
Kristan Higgins is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of nearly twenty novels, which have been translated into more than two dozen languages and have sold millions of copies worldwide. Her books have received many awards and accolades, and she is a six-time nominee for The Kirkus Prize for best work of fiction. Higgins lives in Connecticut with her family.
A devoted fan of fantasy literature since age eight, Joss Dey dreamed of being able to create her own magic and did so for sixteen years as a graphic designer. However, the desire to follow in the footsteps of her childhood hero, Susan Cooper, never left her and, in her greatest act of rebellion, she pursued and received an MFA in Creative Writing from American University. Though she stopped “screwing around” and eventually “got a real job”, she never stopped writing, intuitively comprehending that she would never be happy if writing didn’t play a major role in her life. Luckily, she joined RWA in 2004, a move that happily confirmed that being a writer is an affliction from which there is no cure, at least there isn’t Joss’s case. Today, from her basement office in the ghetto in New Haven, Connecticut, she writes emotionally-driven urban fantasies that explore questions about love, family and self amidst bizarre creatures, odd goings on and the end of the world.
