Lena Dunham On Book Tour

LENA DUNHAM ON BOOK TOUR

Lena Dunham’s coming tour to promote her book “Not That Kind of Girl,” is already partly sold out, months before it kicks off in New York City on Sept. 30.
Dunham, who received an advance of more than $3.5 million for the book, incited minor online pandemonium with the announcement of the 11-stop tour, which will feature Dunham onstage with “oodles of special guests,” as her website put it, including the writers Mary Karr (in Boston), Curtis Sittenfeld (in Iowa City) and Carrie Brownstein (in Portland). Advance tickets for the event at the Chicago Humanities Festival on Oct. 6, where Ms. Dunham will appear with the “Girls” co-executive producer Jenni Konner, were sold out almost immediately. Ditto for the finale on Oct. 21 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, featuring Zadie Smith, Jemima Kirke and the band Bleachers, fronted by Ms. Dunham’s boyfriend, Jack Antonoff.
