When writer, humorist and fighting feminist Lindy West released the hardcover version of Shrill last year, the media ate it up. NPR, Esquire, Newsweek and the Los Angeles Times all put it on the short list of must reads and now West is celebrating the release of the paperback version. No subject is taboo, including diarrhea, her visit to the abortion clinic and her ongoing dialogue to convince herself (and the world) that fat people have value. This New York Times bestselling author is making a stop in Houston to discuss and sign copies of her book, and it's our chance to see why Internet trolls don't stand a chance when they try to battle wits with the provocative West.
