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.
