April 18, Los Angeles: I'm moderating a panel of hilarious women writers (Mallory Ortberg, Issa Rae, and Pamela Ribon!) at the LA Times Festival of Books. It's gonna be so good.
"Another wonderful, action-packed newsletter." -Jacqueline Church. Have you ever considered a career in film reviewing? I think these are the same adjectives Peter Travers used to describe "The Equalizer" starring Denzel Washington.
"Very glad to see @annfriedman's newsletter. It's unexpected though and I wonder if she ever rests" -Evren Kiefer. Spent most of this week by a pool in Palm Springs drinking alcoholic slushy bevs. (I put whiskey and Vernor's ginger ale in a blender with ice. It was a revelation.) Don't you worry 'bout me.
"Sitting by the waterfront enjoying the first creemee of the season & reading the @annfriedman weekly. Life couldn't be better." -Tori Houston. I LOVE a good regional dairy treat.
"Your newsletter is amazing, and it's the only one I read. Do you build it throughout the week, or write it all in one sitting?" -Paul Balcerak. I save links throughout the week, but I write in one sitting. Or in today's case, one reclining. I am still in bed.
This newsletter would slay for a Culver's concrete right now.
Forward it to someone who shares your taste in regional ice cream.
