Bestselling Author & Podcast Host Nora McInerny Announces New Tour Dates

After a three-year hiatus, Nora McInerny, bestselling author, “Terrible Thanks for Asking” podcast host and APB speaker is hitting the road.

McInerny will also be popping into bookstores for events in between live shows. Cities include Phoenix; San Antonio; Nashville, Tenn.; Milwaukee, Wis.; and Harrisburg, Pa.

“I am so, so excited to get back on the road and see all your faces,” McInerny wrote in her newsletter.

A writer, whose pieces have appeared in The New York Times, TIME and The Washington Post, McInerny specializes in difficult conversations: death, loss, illness, mental health, trauma, change, how to move forward with grief with resilience, joy, love and humor. She regularly dives into the topics most people avoid with refreshing candor, heart and humor. In doing so, she draws upon her own story of profound loss: During six hellish weeks in 2014, McInerny miscarried her second baby, lost her dad to cancer and became a widow at age 31 when her husband died from brain cancer.

In the ensuing years, McInerny became a "reluctant grief specialist," bestselling memoirist and founder dedicated to shining the light on the dark things in life with wit, humor and heart.

She is the author of the critically acclaimed memoirs It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too), The Hot Young Widows Club: Lessons on Survival from the Front Lines of Grief and No Happy Endings: A Memoir. Her award-winning podcast has been praised for its ability to "continuously, unapologetically, ferociously plows into subjects most people are too uncomfortable to touch" (The Atlantic). McInerny’s essays have also been published in Elle, Cosmopolitan, Slate and Vox. She also founded the non-profit organization Still Kickin, which provides grants to help others in need of medical financial support, and the Hot Young Widows Club, which comforts and supports those who have lost significant others.
