One of the highlights of my so-called “career” at The Stranger is that I got to sit across from Lindy West, who would shout funny things at my head all day long. Now that Lindy’s at, everybody has gotten to know the pleasure of having her hilarious, brilliant exclamations whizzing toward their craniums. With the Jezebel editor Anna Holmes, Lindy has helped change the way we talk about women on the internet. Tonight, they’re reading from The Book of Jezebel, an encyclopedia written by many contributors to Gawker’s influential feminist site. (Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave,, 7:30 pm, $5)
