Alfred Russel Wallace reads.
Alice White and her puppy pal read.
Alice White (1904-1983) reading with her Chow puppy.
White began her career as a secretary and script girl, working for Josef von Sternberg and Charles Chaplin. A sexy and bubbly player, she was repeatedly miscast as a singer-dancer. She toured the vaudeville circuit after her career spluttered, returning to Hollywood only to get involved in a sex scandal in 1933 with her boyfriend, actor Jack Warburton, and future husband Sy Bartlett.
Brosh reads all the things.
Last night WORD was overrun (LOOK AT ALL THOSE PEOPLE) by our fellow Hyperbole and a Half enthusiasts. Allie Brosh stayed til 1:30 a.m. (TRUE STORY) talking with attendees, receiving gifts like the above-pictured dinosaur costume, and signing until we thought her hand was going to fall off. It was an amazing evening for us — thank you Allie, and thank you to all the dedicated, wonderful fans!
(If you couldn’t make it, we’ve got signed copies of the paperback available.)
