When the world speaks of the universe that is “Black Twitter” one of its foremost blog stars, comes to mind; the thought provoking, gifted wordsmith who spills the tea and tells it like it is, Luvvie Ajayi, known by her fans as Awesomely Luvvie. On October 8, her fans in Detroit will have the opportunity to meet the woman behind the witty 140 characters and razor sharp poignant blogs when she appears at the Detroit Public Library’s Main Branch from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Luvvie will be appearing to discusses her debut book, “I’m Judging You”, at the Detroit Public Library – Main Library. Luvvie’s new book is a collective of humorous essays that dissect cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives. It passes on lessons and side-eyes on life, social media, culture and fame, addressing those terrible friends we all have to serious discussions of race and media representation. The book even discusses what to do about that fool cousin sharing casket pictures from Grandma’s wake on Facebook with a lighthearted, razor sharp wit that creatively paints Luvvie’s unique perspective.
A thirteen-year blogging veteran, Luvvie is the voice behind Awesomely Luvvie, a respected humor blog that covers everything pop culture – from TV, movies and technology to travel, race and life’s random adventures. With over 500,000 readers a month, the enormously popular blog is the go-to source for smart takes on pop culture, social commentary.
