Book cover for I Hear She's a Real Bitch by Jen Agg
Join us for a librarian-led discussion about Jen Agg's book I Hear She's a Real Bitch. From the publisher: "Studded with Agg’s frank and often hilarious observations on an industry in which sexism has been normalized, I Hear She’s a Real Bitch is more than just a story about starting a restaurant: it is a rallying cry for a feminist revolution in the culinary world."

Once registered, bring your library card on, or after, May 18 to pick up your copy of the book at the Tommy Douglas Library Information Desk.
