Posted on

Carrie Brownstein — Sleater-Kinney member, Portlandia star, and author of the forthcoming memoir Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl — has assembled a group so star-studded for her book tour, it rivals Taylor Swift’s tour.

From musicians (Questlove), to comedians (Amy Poehler and Aidy Bryant), to cultural critics (Jessica Hopper), to authors (Where’d You Go Bernadette‘s Maria Semple), Brownstein seems to have chosen folks from every pop cultural sphere she’s involved in. Each night of the book tour will be a ticketed event, where Brownstein will discuss the book with the evening’s special guest, and answer questions from the audience.

Check out the full roster below, and get your tickets here.
