Abbi Jacobson

In Conversation with Mike Perry

Oct 27, 2016 • 7:00 pm ET
  • This event has passed.

This program will not include a book signing. All books will be pre-signed by the author.

Carry This Book is a wonderfully weird and weirdly wonderful illustrated look at the world around us—all through the framework of the things we carry—by the co-creator and co-star of Comedy Central’s Broad City.

With bright, quirky, and colorful line drawings, the comedian, writer, actress and illustrator brings to life actual and imagined items found in the pockets, purses, bags and glove compartments of real and fantastical people—whether it’s the contents of Oprah’s favorite purse or Amelia Earhart’s pencil case.

How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump’s weekender? What’s inside Martha Stewart’s hand-knit fanny pack? What kind of protein bars does Michelle Obama hide in her tiny clutch at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Carry This Book provides an insightful look into how the things we carry around every day can make up who we are. Jacobson will be in conversation with Mike Perry, an artist, animator, creative director, brand consultant, poet, and designer who did the animation for the opening credits of Broad City.
