Livingston native Chelsea Handler will discuss her latest book, “Life Will Be the Death of Me: … and you too!,” Sept. 19 at the First Congregational Church in Montclair. The event will be a fundraiser for the the Montclair-based organization Succeed2gether (a tutoring program aimed at closing the opportunity gap).
“Life Will Be the Death of Me” is a memoir by the former “Chelsea Lately” host. According to publicity material, it is the “all-true story of Chelsea Handler’s year of self-discovery — featuring a nerdily brilliant psychiatrist, a shaman, four Chow Chows, some well-placed security cameras, various family members (living and departed), friends, assistants, and a lot of edibles.”
The Montclair Literary Festival is also a fundraiser for Succeed2gether. The next edition of the annual festival is scheduled to take place March 25-29, at various Montclair locations.
The third annual festival, which took place in March of this year, included appearances by luminaries such as Joyce Carol Oates and Richard Thompson.
