Carrie Brownstein enlists Amy Poehler, Questlove, and more for her book tour

With a new memoir, Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl, due out October 27, Carrie Brownstein is going on tour. The Sleater-Kinney guitarist and Portlandia star has announced a number of star-studded speaking engagements around the book’s release, including appearances with Amy Poehler, Questlove, and Saturday Night Live cast member Aidy Bryant. Each of the talks is being billed as a conversation with Brownstein, meaning no one should go expecting to rock out unless they want to get their literary consciousnesses, like, totally thrashed.

A full list of the dates is below, with each guest host noted.
