Maria Semple at the Philly Free Library (YOYO)

NOTE: This is a YOYO Event (You're on Your Own).

Maria Semple will be speaking and signing books at the Free Library in Philadelphia.  This is a FREE event.

From the library's webpage:  During her 15-year television career, screenwriter and Writers Guild Award nominee Maria Semple wrote for such shows as Mad About You, Saturday Night Live, Ellen,and Arrested Development. Her debut novel This One is Mine, called an “uncompromising and trenchantly funny portrait of Los Angeles life that rings uncomfortably true” (Sex and the City creator Darren Star) parodied the classic life of luxury and the ruinous choices made in the pursuit of happiness.  Her new “divinely funny, many-faceted novel” (New York Times), Where’d You Go, Bernadette takes place in a satirized Seattle, examining misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an increasingly absurd world.
