Book Launch: Amanda Stern presents Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life In conversation with A.M. Homes

  • Greenlight Bookstore 686 Fulton Street Brooklyn, NY, 11217 United States (map)

Author and host of the Happy Ending Reading series Amanda Stern presents hotly anticipated, widely praised new memoir about living life on the razor’s edge of panic, in the vein of bestselling memoirs about mental illness like Andrew Solomon's Noonday Demon, Sarah Hepola's Blackout, and Daniel Smith's Monkey MindLittle Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life charts Stern’s childhood in 1970s and 80s New York – from her mother’s barefoot bohemian world in Greenwich Village to the sanitized, stricter sphere of her uptown father -- where Amanda experiences the magic and madness of life through the filter of unrelenting panic. Tenderly delivered and expertly structured, Amanda Stern's memoir is a document of the transformation of New York City and a deep, personal, and comedic account of the trials and errors of seeing life through a very unusual lens. Stern launches her new memoir at Greenlight, in conversation with bestselling writer A.M Homes, author of The Safety of Objects. A wine reception follows to celebrate the launch.
