Tavi Gevinson: Rookie on Love

Back in 2011 a fifteen-year-old Tavi Gevinson launched Rookie, and online magazine focusing on art and writing, fashion, pop culture, feminism, and social issues, especially ones that effect teens. Over the years the magazine has grown into a powerful voice and has decided to address one of life’s most heart-breaking and breath-taking experiences: love.

This collection includes 45 voices, featuring exclusive, never-before-seen essays, poems, comics, and interviews from contributors like Jenny Zhang, Emma Straub, Hilton Als, Janet Mock, John Green, Rainbow Rowell, Gabourey Sidibe, Mitski, Alessia Cara, Etgar Keret, Margo Jefferson, Sarah Manguso, Durga Chew-Bose, and many more!

Join us as Tavi shares this magnificent anthology! We’ll also have a table set up to create DIY Valentine’s/Galentine’s for one another! Materials will be supplied.

Tavi Gevinson is an actress and writer, and the founder of Rookie. Gevinson’s career in media began in 2008 when she created the blog Style Rookie at age 11. After writing about fashion for magazines like ELLE, Pop and Harper’s Bazaar, Gevinson launched Rookie, an online teen magazine, as a sophomore in high school. She made her Broadway debut in 2014 in Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth; other Broadway credits include Ivo van Hove’s production of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible and Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard. Gevinson has guest-starred on shows like Parenthood, Scream Queens, and The Simpsons. Rookie has published four print anthologies with Penguin Random House, the Rookie Yearbooks. Gevinson also hosts The Rookie Podcast, produced and distributed by MTV.
