Acclaimed essayist Mary Laura Philpott is scheduled to deliver Northwest College’s annual Wasden Reading Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. in the Yellowstone Building Conference Center.
Featured on must-read lists from Esquire, Newsweek, BuzzFeed, Town & Country, the Skimm, ELLE Australia, Lit Hub, Southern Living, Bustle, The Millions, BookRiot and the Chicago Review of Books, Philpott’s book “I Miss You When I Blink” was named to the number one spot on the Indie Next List by booksellers nationwide.
In a collection of relatable essays and observations about home, work and creative life, she tackles the conflicting pressures of modern adulthood with wit and heart. She offers advice based on her own personal experiences and reassures her audience that small, recurring personal inventions are both normal and necessary.
Philpott’s books will be available for purchase and signing after the reading. Admission to the event is free and open to the public.
