Coffee & Conversation: Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self Delusion by Jia Tolentino

Wednesday, March 8, 2023
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Trick Mirror is an enlightening, unforgettable trip through the river of self-delusion that surges just beneath the surface of our lives. This is a book about the incentives that shape us, and about how hard it is to see ourselves clearly in a culture that revolves around the self. In each essay, Jia writes about the cultural prisms that have shaped her: the rise of the nightmare social internet; the American scammer as millennial hero; the literary heroine’s journey from brave to blank to bitter; the mandate that everything, including our bodies, should always be getting more efficient and beautiful until we die.

 

Coffee will be provided from Fort Thomas Coffee.
