MONTCLAIR, NJ - Chelsea Handler will be speaking in Montclair at the First Congregational Church on September 19 during the Succeed2gether and S2G’s Montclair Literary Festival.
As part of the organization's fall fundraiser, Handler will discuss her #1 New York Times bestseller, “Life Will Be the Death of Me”, in which she shares the funny, sad, super-honest, all-true story of her year of self-discovery.
The proceeds of the fundraiser will be for the Montclair-based non-profit Succeed2gether, which offers free community-based one-on-one tutoring and year-round enrichment classes for low-income families in Essex County.
Organizers state that the money will be used to fund Succeed2gether's programs, aimed at closing the opportunity and achievement gap for students in Montclair and the surrounding communities. Founded in the winter of 2009, Succeed2gether is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year.
Handler will also be talking about her new Netflix documentary “Hello Privilege, It’s Me Chelsea”, in which she examines her own privilege as she travels around America and talks to other people about having (or not having) white privilege. Her documentary will be released by Netflix on September 13, 2019.
Each ticket includes a signed copy of the book "Life Will Be the Death of Me". VIP ticket includes early access to the venue, signed book, and VIP seating.
