Kelly Williams Brown to speak at #SalemOR Public Library

Kelly Williams Brown to speak at Salem Public Library

Kelly Williams Brown
7 p.m. Wednesday, September 14
Loucks Auditorium

Kelly Williams Brown is the New York Times-bestselling author of Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps, which addresses everything from finding a non-awful apartment to negotiating for a raise at work. Her second book, Gracious: The Subtle Art of Charm, Tact & Unsinkable Strength will be published in April 2017 through Rodale. This program is free and open to the public.

Once a writer for the Statesman Journal, Brown’s work has appeared on or in the New York Times, the Today Show, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Esquire, The Boston Globe, Fast Company and more, and been translated into seven languages. The Washington Post called her “a Millennial advice-guru,” and her TEDx Talk, I’m a Millennial, and I am a Monster was a TED.com editor’s pick of the week. She’s also spoken at NASA, universities across the country and was invited to the White House to facilitate a conversation about student loans with President Obama in partnership with Tumblr. She has also worked as a long-form features writer, a humor columnist for The Daily Beast, a cocktail waitress on Bourbon Street, and for several years covered rural Mississippi for a daily newspaper, which has left her with a lifetime supply of ridiculous anecdotes to tell at cocktail parties.

This event is just one of a series of programs associated with a traveling exhibit, Thinking Money that will be on display at Salem Public Library throughout September. Thinking Money is designed to teach tweens, teens and the adults in their lives about financial topics like saving, spending, and avoiding fraud. Thinking Money was created by the American Library Association (ALA) in partnership with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. Photo Credit: William Bragg.
