Beginning this month we’ll be sharing a weekly dose of virtual event replays of days past right here on the BookPeople blog! They’re perfect for readers to get a second helping of events they loved or who happened to miss out the first time around! We’ll be kicking this series off with this month’s presentation from Alexi Pappas!
In Bravey, Olympic runner, actress, filmmaker and writer Alexi Pappas shares what she’s learned about confidence, self-reliance, mental health, embracing pain, and achieving your dreams. Pappas was with us earlier this month in support of her new memoir and in conversation with SXSW’s Janet Pierson. It is a conversation full of that kick-2021-in-the-butt attitude we all need right now. Watch the discussion here!
Order Bravey today and receive a signed bookplate (while supplies last) when you do so!
More virtual events like this one can be found on BookPeople’s Facebook page. If Facebook isn’t your thing, that’s okay—they are available for viewing without an account!
