Virtual book tours, as far as we saw, worked surprisingly well throughout 2020, especially when it came to comedy books that had planned a nationwide schedule pre-pandemic. Not only could you tune in from wherever you were (so long as you minded the time zone difference), but if you missed one, odds are that it was pretty easy to tune into another one because virtual access could, again, be gained from wherever you’re hooked up to WiFi.
So, one of the first comedy book events of 2021 ought to be a riveting and very important one as Amber Ruffin and her sister Lacey Lamar will be having a conversation about their book, You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey. Akin to the bits you’ve seen Ruffin do on Late Night with Seth Meyers and her own newly minted series The Amber Ruffin Show, the book will offer up tales of their particularly ridiculous experiences with racism (hopefully, folks know that racism is still very much here in 2021).
On Tues. Jan. 19th at 4PM PT/7PM ET, Ruffin and Lamar will be chatting with Mykel Hunter of WEAA in the latest edition of Writers LIVE! and it’s free to attend (just RSVP here). Also, you can order a copy of You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey right here.
