Jennifer Worick, Things I Want to Punch in the Face


If the idea of calling out certain current cultural phenomena for the weenie it is makes you want to cover your ears, stay away from this book, and its boistrous launch event party!  However, if shoeless households and man caves are the very sorts of things that set your teeth on edge, then you'll fit right in.

Jennifer Worick’s new book makes a high and lively art form out of calling out things that make her and the rest of us cray-cray.  We laugh along with pain derived from sorry recognition.  There’s plenty to “take issue” with in our current zeitgeist, and Jen does it here in ways we can remember and share with our friends at parties.  That is, if we’re not afraid of offending someone!  And we’re not!

Jennifer Worick is the bestselling author of lots of books. See her impressive list below.  Her blog on this topic won the lottery . . . it turned into a real book!  And it's a doozy. Here's the trailer.  It's funny!

Come join the merriment, where local notables will be calling out the things that make them want to punch, and we'll be taking no prisoners for the night. Please come, and grant your political correctness the night off!
