      Kathleen Hale Is a Crazy Stalker -- Kathleen Hale with Heather Anne Campbell

      Note: Your ticket includes - and is the same price as - the book. The Last Bookstore is pleased to present Kathleen Hale launching her new essay collection Kathleen Hale Is A Crazy Stalker in conversation with writer and comedian Heather Anne Campbell.   Kathleen Hale Is A Crazy Stalker is a captivating and diverse collection of essays unlike anything you’ve ever read before, exploring sexual assault, online obsession, motherhood, and the best way to kill a feral hog. In six essays united by a common theme, Kathleen Hale traces some of the most treacherous fault lines in modern America—from sexual assault to Internet trolling, from environmental illness to our own animal nature. In these wide-ranging pieces, Hale proves herself to be an exhilarating new voice whose writing is both fearless and profound. In “First I Got Pregnant. Then I Decided to Kill the Mountain Lion,” Hale recounts the month she spent tracking a wild cat lost in the Hollywood Hills while pregnant; in “Prey,” she tells the troubling story of her sexual assault as a freshman in college; other essays recount the mesmerizing stories of a trip to hunt wild hogs in Florida, and a standoff with an anonymous blogger. On the surface, Hale’s writing is deeply personal, but these essays also tell thought-provoking stories of predators and prey. Taking no prisoners and fearing no subject matter, Kathleen Hale wields razor-sharp wit, uncommon levels of empathy, and daring honesty, even in detailing some of the most difficult moments of her life. By turns hilarious, candid, and sometimes unsettling, Kathleen Hale Is A Crazy Stalker introduces an arresting and unusual new voice for this strange American century. Kathleen Hale has written for the Guardian, Elle, Vogue, GQ, Vice, and Hazlitt, among many others. She is the author of two young adult novels, one of which was named one of the best YA novels of 2014 by Time. In addition to her fiction and journalism, she has also written for Netflix, Marvel, CBS, and HBO.   Heather Anne Campbell is an Emmy-nominated writer and comedian whose credits include The Twilight Zone, Miracle Workers, Saturday Night Live, Whose Line is it Anyway?, The Eric Andre Show, and Comedy Central's Corporate. She performs at UCB LA in Hebecky Drysbell, Last Day of School, and The Midnight Show. All events are subject to cancellation, so please check back.
