Jeannie Gaffigan: When Life Gives You Pears


In a book that is The Big Sick meets Dad Is Fat, Jeannie Gaffigan, writing partner and wife of bestselling author/comedian Jim Gaffigan, writes with humor and heart about the pear-sized brain tumor she had removed, the toll it took on her enormous family, and the priceless lessons she learned along the way.

Jim interviews Jeannie in a rare public discussion about Jeannie’s honest, funny book. Q&A to follow. Sure to be a hysterical time with Hollywood’s "Quietest Power Couple.” Each ticket includes admission to this exclusive event, a signed copy of When Life Gives You Pears, and more Pear surprises!

Jeannie will personalize books following interview and Q&A.
