Terrible, Thanks For Asking! Podcast: Bad Vibes Only Tour with Nora McInerny

Reserve seated show on April 2 at Liberty Hall. 6pm Doors / 7pm Show. Get tickets here

Terrible, Thanks For Asking! is a podcast by author, reluctant grief expert, and generally pretty funny person Nora McInerny that does the opposite of that. That lets people be honest about how theyre really feeling. Sometimes that means: Depressed! Anxious! Stuck in an internet doomscrool! Sometimes it means: If I laugh any harder, I'm gonna bruise a rib! And often, it's a whole lot of both.

It may be Good Vibes Only all day every day at your local HomeGoods store, but here at TTFA, it's Bad Vibes Only.

Raven Booksellers will be on site for this event with copies of McInerny's books for sale!
