Jessamine Chan in Conversation With Sarah Marshall
This event is in the past

Powell's City of Books Pearl District (Portland)
This is an in-person event
In Jessamine Chan’s buzzy dystopic debut The School for Good Mothers, moms who stand accused of even minor parenting infractions must face a Big Brother-like government institution that measures maternal devotion with a cruelly sharp eye. Chan will read from and discuss the novel, which thinks carefully about notions of "perfect" parenting, alongside Sarah Marshall, whose podcast You're Wrong About attacks the myths embedded in modern history and pop culture.
