When you write a book titled It’s Not That I’m Bitter: How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Visible Panty Lines, there’s a pretty good chance you have a wicked sense of humor! Hailed as “smart and funny” by People magazine, Gina Barreca has been delighting audiences around the world and leaving them exhausted from laughter.
Dedicated to women, laughter and the comic muse, Gina Barreca will entertain attendees with her warm humor and insights into relationships.
“The Junior League of Dayton (JLD) is a volunteer organization comprised of women, so it’s appropriate that Gina will wrap the 55th Season of the JLD Town Hall Lecture Series,” said Kathy Barenbrugge, JLD President. “JLD members balance work, family and volunteering with dedication and grace. A sense of humor and lots of laughter make that possible.”
Barreca is a Professor of English Literature and feminist theory at the University of Connecticut. In addition, she has written several best-selling books and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs including The Today Show, Oprah, 20/20 and The Joy Behar Show.
The Town Hall Lecture Series is sponsored by its media partners, ThinkTV and Times Community Newspaper. To date, the Town Hall Lecture Series has raised over $1.8 million to support local JLD community programs, such as POWER (Program of Wellness Education and Resources), a children’s advocacy program in partnership with The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton, and the Holiday Hunt, an annual tradition of the Dayton Holiday Festival.
