AWP Event: Emily Farris Book Launch

February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join author Emily Farris and the 21c Museum Hotel Kansas City to celebrate the publication of I’ll Just Be Five More Minutes: And Other Tales from My ADHD Brain (Hachette Books, February 6, 2024).

6:00 – 7:00 PM Reading + Signing Copies will be available for purchase from The Raven Bookstore.

7:00 – 9:00 PM Reception Music from Lorna Kay’s Country Club. Light refreshments provided, cash bar available.

ABOUT THE BOOK: I’ll Just Be Five More Minutes is a personal essay collection of laugh-out-loud-funny, tear-jerking, and at times cringey true stories of Emily’s experiences as a neurodivergent woman. With the newfound knowledge of her ADHD, Emily candidly reexamines her complicated relationships (including one with a celebrity stalker), her money problems, the years she spent unknowingly self-medicating, and her hyperfixations (two words: decorative baskets).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: In the fifth grade, Emily Farris won the DARE Essay contest, and since then she’s written for lots of publications you’ve actually heard of. Currently a senior staff writer at Bon Appétit and Epicurious, Emily lives in Kansas City with her family. Sign up for her sporadic newsletter at or follow her on Instagram @thatemilyfarris.
