Harvard Book Store welcomes back London Times columnist CAITLIN MORAN, the bestselling author of How to Be a Woman and Moranthology, for a discussion of her latest book, Moranifesto. Ms. Moran will be joined in conversation by Boston Globe columnist MEREDITH GOLDSTEIN.

About Moranifesto

From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Woman and Moranthology comes a collection of Caitlin Moran’s award-winning London Times columns that takes a clever, hilarious look at celebrities, society, and the wacky world we live in today—including three major new pieces exclusive to this book.

When Caitlin Moran sat down to choose her favorite pieces for her new book, she realized that they all shared a common theme—the same old problems and the same old ass-hats. Then she thought of the word ‘Moranifesto’, and she knew what she had to do…

Introducing every piece and weaving her writing together into a brilliant, seamless narrative—just as she did in Moranthology—Caitlin combines the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing unique to this book as she offers a characteristically fun and witty look at the news, celebrity culture, and society. Featuring strong and important pieces on poverty, the media, and class, Moranifesto also focuses on how socially engaged we’ve become as a society.

And of course, Caitlin is never afraid to address the big issues, such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats. Who else but Caitlin Moran—a true modern Renaissance woman—could deal with topics as pressing and diverse as the beauty of musicals, affordable housing, Daft Punk, and why the Internet is like a drunken toddler?

Covering everything from Hillary Clinton to UTIs, Caitlin’s manifesto is an engaging and mischievous rallying call for our times.

Praise

"Moran’s endless sense of humor, enthusiasm for punching upward, and liberal use of the word ‘you’ makes reading the collection like hanging out with a loud and chatty friend." —Publishers Weekly

"Humorous and/or serious essays that run through the gauntlet that comprises life . . . [Moran’s] observations on somber topics are the highlights, giving readers a better sense of the compassionate, intelligent woman behind the prose." —Kirkus
