Author Q&A w/ Julio Vincent Gambuto

October 2023

Meet author and moviemaker Julio Vincent Gambuto for a fireside-style chat - co-hosted by our friends at Italic Type - about his new book, Please Unsubscribe, Thanks!


After Julio’s essay series Prepare for the Ultimate Gaslighting went viral, reaching 21 million readers across 98 countries, he kept interrogating the relentlessness of modern life - and then he wrote a book about it. Please Unsubscribe, Thanks! offers a radical blueprint for how to fight back against the incessant demands for our attention and explores how corporate interests gained such a stranglehold on our time, focus, money, and power. Think Atomic Habits meets The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck meets Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals.A moviemaker by trade and training, Julio has written, directed, and produced film and television content for The New Yorker, Nickelodeon, PBS, and E! Entertainment. He is a graduate of Harvard University and earned his MFA from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where he was an Annenberg Fellow. He’s also the co-founder of TAYPE, an after-school arts program for LGBTQ+ teens.

Join us for an evening that promises to be irreverent, earnest, and - above all - thought-provoking! The evening will include a reading, Q&A, and book-signing.
