In this event, Abbie speaks to author Katherine Heiny about her ability to breathe life and laughter to the mundane through her writing. We will particularly discuss her book 'Early Morning Riser', published in April 2021, which was described by the Washington Post as "the funniest novel of the year".

Meet the Host, Abbie
Abbie is the Events and Community Manager at Mirthy, moderating many of the weekly events. As an avid reader and keen musician, she also runs the Mirthy Book Club and Desert Island Discs events. She loves chatting to Mirthy members at the community events, and relishes the challenge of leading the Book Club Q&A every month.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
