About the Speaker 

Sarah Hepola is a New York Times Best-Selling author and essayist about current culture. Her essays have appeared in The New York Times magazine and more. She is also a contributor to NPR’s “Fresh Air.” She is currently working on a book about sex and dating in the 21st century.

Her memoir, “Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget”, chronicles her years in campus drinking culture. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, brutally honest, and takes on touchy topics (like party culture, sexual consent, and college stress). She discusses her struggle with realizing the alcohol she thought was fuel was actually draining her spirit. She had to play detective in her own life, piecing together the lost time of nights before. Her story will resonate with anyone who has been forced to reinvent themselves.
