When comedian Amber Ruffin opened a week’s worth of Late Night With Seth Meyers episodes by retelling her own harrowing run-ins with the police, she made it clear her experiences were hardly unique in the Black community. Now, Ruffin has teamed up with sister Lacey Lamar to share even more enraging and witty stories about everyday bigotry in their new book, You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey: Crazy Stories about Racism ($18).
We’re thrilled to announce we’re hosting both Amber and Lacey in our POPSUGAR Book Club Facebook group on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 1:30 p.m. PT/4:30 p.m. ET for an exclusive live chat. Tune in via Facebook Live, and ask them all your burning questions about their new bestselling book and the jaw-dropping experiences that inspired it.
To join this free event, become a member of our POPSUGAR Book Club Facebook group today. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey: Crazy Stories About Racism, which Mindy Kaling describes as “hilarious and eye-opening” in advance, and RSVP for the event here. We can’t wait to see you there!
