Misfit - it's such a literal word. A person who missed fitting in, a person who fits in badly or a person poorly adapted to a new environment. It's a word typically loaded with shame. A word no one typically tries to own. Until now.
Lidia Yuknavitch is a proud misfit. That wasn't always the case. It took her a long time to appreciate her misfit status. Having dropped out of college twice, with two failed marriages under her belt, an episode of rehab for drug use and two stints in jail, Lidia felt like she would never fit in and become the writer she wanted to be.
Today, Lidia is a successful teacher and writer – and a mother and wife. But she is still, unquestionably, a misfit.The Misfit's Manifesto is for anyone who has ever felt like she was messing up – like she doesn't fit in or can't find the right path. It's a love letter to the misfits. In her charming, funny and frank style, Lidia will reveal why being a misfit is not something to overcome but something to embrace. She encourages her fellow misfits to stand up and ask for the things they want the most. Misfits belong in the room too.
