A ferociously intelligent debut novel, Break in Case of Emergency has been called "funny, satirical, and deftly written" by Mike Schur, co-creator of Parks and Recreation. Jessica will be in conversation with Mallory Ortberg, a.k.a. Dear Prudence, co-creator of the cult-favorite website The Toast, and author of Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters.
