We are thrilled to host a meet and greet with YouTube personality and prankster extraordinaire JennXPenn! If you are one of her 2 million followers, come meet Jenn, take a selfie, and purchase a signed copy of her new book, Really Professional Internet Person!
Jenn McAllister has been obsessed with making videos since she found her parents video camera at the age of eight. “I just love creating something out of nothing, basically, and coming up with ideas and putting them to life through my videos and editing,” says the nineteen-year-old, who now finds herself in L.A. acting in feature films and walking the red carpet at shows like the VMAs and the Teen Choice Awards, where she was recently nominated for “Best Web Star: Comedy.”
Jenn’s book, Really Professional Internet Person, offers both an insider’s guide to building a successful YouTube channel and an intimate portrait of the surreality of insta-fame and the harsh reality of high school. The book will feature top ten lists, photos, screenshots, social media posts and never-before-posted stories and will chronicle the 18-year-old’s personal journey from shy middle-schooler to YouTube sensation.
We’re excited to welcome Jenn to BookPeople! Tickets are required and only available from BookPeople. Hope you can join us Wednesday, September 2!
