Jason Carney (Starve the Vulture) and Lisa Jakub (“You Look Like That Girl…”) share stories from their lives, crawling away from harrowing events toward fame and leaving a life of fame for one’s own script.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Jason Carney has had to cancel his participation.

Why Should You Attend?

“It seems impossible to me that a reader could fail to be gripped by Carney’s straightforward, vulnerable voice, which is able to imbue the harrowing events of his life with beauty, humor, and deep meaning.” —Hippocampus Magazine

“Carney will easily win sympathy for his life, in which he has persevered to show others the hard work of his salvation.”
Kirkus Reviews

You Look Like That Girl is a highly entertaining but clear-eyed look at what it’s like to grow up in, and grow out of, show business.” –Quinn Cummings, author of Notes From the Underwire

“Those of us who walked away from the spotlight are often asked to explain why. In ‘You Look Like That Girl,’ Lisa Jakub does explain, with her characteristic eloquence and gentle humor, better than anyone else could.” –Mara Wilson, writer and performer
