Village Books is thrilled to welcome Jim Carrey and co-author, Dana Vachon to Bellingham on tour for their novel, Memoirs and Misinformation.
"None of this is real and all of it is true." --Jim Carrey
Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our "one big soul," Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world--apocalypses within and without.
JIM CARREY is an award-winning actor and artist.
DANA VACHON is the author of the novel Mergers and Acquisitions. His essays and journalism have appeared in The New York Times, Slate, and Vanity Fair. He lives in Brooklyn.
Tickets are available at WWU’s box office and online through WWU’s box office ( Tickets are $45/$55 and include a copy of Memoirs and Misinformation*. Online purchases are subject to standard WWU box office fees.
No backpacks will be permitted in the theater and all bags are subject to search.
Doors open at 6pm.

—San Francisco Chronicle
