Aisha Tyler in the Bryant Park Reading Room

Ever done something you knew immediately was a mistake? In Self-Inflicted Wounds, Aisha Tyler, comedian, actress, cohost of CBS's The Talk, star of Archer, and creator of the top-ranked podcast Girl on Guy, takes readers through her own adventures with epic fails. From sleeping through the SATs to almost setting herself on fire, join Aisha in the Bryant Park Reading Room sponsored by HSBC this Wednesday as she discusses learning to embrace failure by trusting that she’ll learn from her mistakes or at the very least walk away with a hilarious story to tell.


And don't forget the first person to arrive for the event after 12pm, find the Reading Room Coordinator and say the secret passcode: Epic Humiliation will win a copy of Ms. Tyler's book. Reading Room is open weather permitting 11am to 7pm. Books available courtesy of publishers, while supplies last.
