The Regulator welcomes Heather Havrilesky for a reading and book signing in celebration of the paperback release of her new book, What If This Were Enough. Havrilesky's impassioned and inspiring collection of essays about the expectations of modern life and the sweet imperfections of the everyday was selected as one of Publisher’s Weekly's "Best Books of the Year."
Heather Havrilesky's writing has been called "whip-smart and profanely funny" (Entertainment Weekly) and "required reading for all humans" (Celeste Ng). From the allure of materialism to our misunderstandings of romance and success, Havrilesky deconstructs some of the most poisonous and misleading messages we ingest today, all the while suggesting new ways to navigate our increasingly bewildering world.
Heather Havrilesky is the author of How to Be a Person in the World, the memoir Disaster Preparedness, and What If This Were Enough. She writes the "Ask Polly" column for New York magazine and has written for The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine, and NPR's All Things Considered, among others. She was Salon's TV critic for seven years. Havrilesky was raised in Durham and now lives in Los Angeles.
