Author and creator Miranda July isn’t bound by medium nor by expectations. From films like Me and You and Everyone We Know  and Kajillionaire, to books like No One Belongs Here More Than You and The First Bad Man, to an iPhone app that reroutes text messages to strangers, July’s powers of creativity and observation are wise, surprising, and always delightful. Her second novel, All Fours, is the story of a woman’s artistic cross-country quest that  has already won praise from George Saunders, Emma Cline, and Vogue for its intimacy, humor, and boundary defying freedom.

Interviewer and writer Anna Sale has hosted the podcast Death, Sex & Money for WNYC Studios since 2014. Likened by The New York Times to “a therapist at happy hour,” she has contributed to This American Life and Fresh Air and written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Buzzfeed. Her 2021 book Let’s Talk About Hard Things was called “a book that made us think and act differently this year” by Vox and compared to “a conversation with a good friend” by The New Yorker.

A limited number of tickets include a copy of All Fours.
