Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl: An evening with Carrie Brownstein
Friday 13th November 2015, 7pm
Glasgow Women’s Library, 23 Landressy Street, Glasgow

Carrie Brownstein (web)A candid, funny, and deeply personal look at making a life and finding yourself in music, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl is an intimate and revealing narrative of Brownstein’s escape from a turbulent family life into a world where music was the means toward self-invention, community, and rescue. Along the way, Brownstein chronicles the excitement and contradictions within the era’s flourishing and fiercely independent music subculture, including experiences that sowed the seeds for the observational satire of the popular television series Portlandia years later.

*please note that there will be no signing session on the evening, with Carrie kindly pre signing all books before the event.
