Rainbow PUSH
930 E 50th St, Chicago, IL 60615


Join MetroBoard on Wednesday, June 7 as we kickoff our Homecoming celebrations with #MBBookTalk featuring Chicago’s own Luvvie Ajayi! We are super excited that she will joining us to be discuss her bestselling book, I’m Judging You: The Do-Better Manual.



**There will be books available for purchase at the event**


With over 500,000 readers a month at her enormously popular blog,, Luvvie Ajayi is a go-to source for smart takes on pop culture. I’m Judging You is her debut book of humorous essays that dissects our cultural obsessions and calls out bad behavior in our increasingly digital, connected lives. It passes on lessons and side-eyes on life, social media, culture and fame, addressing those terrible friends we all have to serious discussions of race and media representation to what to do about your fool cousin sharing casket pictures from Grandma’s wake on Facebook.


With a lighthearted, razor sharp wit and a unique perspective, I’m Judging You is the handbook the world needs, doling out the hard truths and a road map for bringing some “act right” into our lives, social media, and popular culture. It is the Do-Better Manual.
