Hi, Rookies!

If you weren’t able to make it to one of our stops on the Rookie on Love book tour, here’s a glimpse. In addition to readings from contributors and a Q&A with the audience, there was an extra special surprise at our L.A. event: Abbi Jacobson volunteered to answer your (smart, thoughtful, as ever) Ask a Grown Qs, live! You may know the writer, actress, and illustrator from her work on the amazing Broad City, her podcast about modern art, A Piece of Work, or her book, Carry This Book, wherein she illustrates the objects she imagines famous people carry around with them. She stars in the new drama 6 Balloons, which comes out on Netflix tomorrow.

Abbi joined us to give some top-notch advice on maintaining long-distance friendships, beating self-doubt and jealousy, supporting yourself, and more! Take it away, Abbi.

If you have your own question that needs answering, please send it, along with your first name (or nickname or initials), city, and age, to [email protected], and write “Ask a Grown” in the subject line.
