Amy Ephron and Yael Kohen

PENELOPE BASS
1 pm., Saturday April 20 | Free.
Powell's City of Books
1005 W Burnside St.
 
Proving once again that the stereotype of women not being as funny as men is a load of crap, Amy Ephron and Yael Kohen will read from their new books. Ephron’s collection of observational essays in Loose Diamonds: ...And Other Things I’ve Lost (and Found) Along the Way explore the intricate tapestry of a modern woman’s world. Kohen provides the anecdotal evidence in her book, We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy, following the careers of famous funny women like Joan Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg and Tina Fey.
