Author Event: Dr. Jen Gunter - The Vagina Bible

Date: January 27, 2020 at 7:00p.m.
Venue: Yates Memorial Theatre

This event is now SOLD OUT.

Join the Lethbridge Public Library as we host Dr. Jennifer Gunter, a Canadian OB/GYN, women’s health advocate, and New York Times columnist. She will be discussing her #1 national bestselling book, The Vagina Bible, in an on-stage interview. On Twitter, she hilariously exposes unscientific wellness advice and debunks potentially harmful and stunningly unnecessary products from “vagina profiteers.” Dr. Gunter knows the questions women (and men) have about female sexual health, and in The Vagina Bible, she answers them all. 

The event will include an on-stage interview, an audience question period, and book signing. The University of Lethbridge Bookstore will have copies of The Vagina Bible available for purchase.

This is a ticketed event with tickets available for no charge at the Customer Service Desk at the Main Branch. Limit of 4 tickets per person.
