Seating is first come, first served and requires advanced registration.

Unorthodox podcast host Stephanie Butnick moderates this lively happy hour discussion with debut novelist Isabel Kaplan and Ariella Elovic, two writers who excel at capturing the cultural moment. Their new novels—Kaplan’s NSFW and Elovic’s Cheeky: A Head-to-Toe Memoir—offer smart, searing social observations and embody the complicated ethos of modern-day New York City and Los Angeles, respectively. 

Isabel Kaplan is the author of the national bestselling novel NSFW, which has been shortlisted for The Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize, as well as the national bestselling young adult novel Hancock Park. She graduated from Harvard and holds an MFA in creative writing from NYU.  

Ariella Elovic is the author and illustrator of CHEEKY: A Head to Toe Memoir. She is the founder of @thecheekyblog, an online platform through which she combats the shame so many of us feel in relation to our bodies. Her work has been featured by The New YorkerCosmopolitan, and Teen Vogue.

Stephanie Butnick is a host of Unorthodox, the #1 Jewish podcast, and director of podcasts for Tablet Magazine. She is the author, along with her podcast co-hosts, of The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia: From Abraham to Zabar’s and Everything in Between.
