Tavi Gevinson in Conversation

November 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Fame found Tavi Gevinson early—right around her 13th year. Now 20, this editor-actress-writer-style-guru is entering her second decade as a creative and tastemaker. Founder of the online publication Rookie, Gevinson has also graced the stage in such productions as This is Our Youth and The Cherry Orchard and has been featured in films Enough Said and Cadaver. She visits Scripps to talk with novelist Jenny Zhang, whose debut Sour Heart hit bookshelves this August, about her career, feminism, and what it’s like to have This American Life’s Ira Glass as one of her mentors.
