Meg Vondriska

July 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Don’t miss a hilarious evening with the brilliantly funny (and rightfully furious) Meg Vondriska, creator of the viral Men Write Women Twitter account. Vondriska’s new book, A Tale of Two Titties, is a satirical guide to writing women like a bestselling male author.

Meg will be in conversation with Carissa Kellerby from the Tulsa City-County Library at a free, in-store event on Wednesday July 24 at 7:00 pm.

A Tale of Two Titties will be published by Sourcebooks on July 23. You can reserve a copy in store or purchase a copy online at: https://magiccitybooks.square.site/product/a-tale-of-two-titties/2354.

About A Tale of Two Titties

Let’s face it, women’s representation in literature really sucks. And that’s mostly because of the male authors who write female characters like they’re nothing more than playthings in their stories. Whether they have breasts like ripe peaches or curves like a racetrack, the literary ladies gracing the pages of bestselling books rarely serve a purpose beyond supporting a male character (or giving him something to fantasize about).

But what are you supposed to do about it if you can’t even get a foot (or, I guess, a boob) in the door?

You beat them at their own game.

In this hilarious yet incisive guide, you’ll learn how to write women just like a bestselling male author–stereotypes, tropes, objectification, and all–so you can start dismantling the system from the inside. With thoughtful literary analysis, interactive exercises, and commentary that perfectly straddles the line between satirical hilarity and righteous indignation, A Tale of Two Titties is both an illuminating study of women’s representation in literature and an absurd (yet accurate) guide to writing through the male gaze.

Meg Vondriska does not feel like a writer, but that has not stopped her from dreaming up stories in the margins of notebooks since grade school and is certainly to blame for her poor understanding of algebra. She grew up in rural Wisconsin but currently resides in Austin, Texas, with her husband, Ryan, and their dog, Tonks. When she is not writing, she can be found riding her horse or sitting on her patio with a glass of red wine and a good book.
