S2G and S2G's Montclair Literary Festival are excited to announce their Fall Fundraiser:
Chelsea Handler in conversation about her #1 New York Times bestseller "Life Will Be the Death of Me".
Chelsea will be in conversation with CBS News Radio anchor Budd Mishkin about her latest #1 New York Times bestseller, in which she shares the funny, sad, super-honest, all-true story of her year of self-discovery.
Chelsea will also be talking about her new Netflix documentary “Hello Privilege, It’s Me Chelsea”, in which she examines her own privilege as she travels around America and talks to other people about having (or not having) white privilege.
Tickets are $50 for general admission, $200 for VIP. Each ticket includes a signed book plate and copy of the book "Life Will Be the Death of Me". VIP ticket includes early access to the venue, book, signed book plate, and VIP seating. Tickets are for sale on Eventbrite here.
Doors open 6pm. Seating unreserved, except for VIP seating.
Chelsea Handler is a writer, comedian, producer, TV host, activist, and the author of five consecutive New York Times bestsellers. She hosted the late-night show Chelsea Lately on the E! network from 2007 to 2014 and released a documentary series, Chelsea Does, on Netflix in January 2016. In 2016 and 2017, Handler hosted the talk show Chelsea on Netflix. Her latest documentary about white privilege will be released by Netflix on September 13, 2019.
The fundraiser will raise money for Montclair-based non-profit Succeed2gether, which offers free community-based one-on-one tutoring and year-round enrichment classes for low-income families in Essex County. The money will be used to fund Succeed2gether's programs, which are all aimed at closing the opportunity and achievement gap for students in Montclair and the surrounding communities. Founded in the winter of 2009, Succeed2gether is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year.
Note, there may be some adult language and themes as part of this conversation.
