  • Lena Dunham is going on an 11 city book tour for “Not That Kind of Girl”

     

    Two years ago, Lena Dunham sold a book proposal for over $3 million. Her book, Not That Kind of Girl, is finally set to be released on October 7th.

Comedians Amy Schumer, Morgan Murphy, Portlandia’s Carrie Brownstein will be joining Dunham for a show.

    In Not That Kind of Girl, Dunham talks about all her missteps in life, and what she learned along the way. The book features stories about, “wonderful nights with terrible boys and terrible days with wonderful friends, about ambition and the two existential crises [Dunham] had before the age of twenty. About fashion and its many discontents. About publicly sharing your body, having to prove yourself in a meeting full of 50 year old men, and the health fears (tinnitus, lamp dust, infertility) that keep [Dunham] up at night.”

    The tour starts September 30th and goes through October 21st. Tickets are on sale now. Full schedule below: Read More
