Back in 2013, teen blogger and Rookie magazine founder Tavi Gevinson revealed her plans to take over Hollywood's Space15Twenty for a week-long pop-up. The tween-filled installation, which hosted everything from a '50s-inspired prom to a DIY flower crown-making workshop, reached its peak with an epic closing event that featured a Q&A with Parks & Recreation's Rashida Jones, a pep talk with SNL's Bill Hader, and the first full-length live performance of The Julie Ruin, '90s riot grrrl icon Kathleen Hanna's band. Not bad for a rager put together by someone who couldn't even legally watch a rated R movie without adult supervision.
Now all grown up and a legitimate Broadway star, 18-year-old Gevinson is bringing her retro-loving girl gang back to LA for a reading, signing, and dance party in honor of her best-selling tome, Rookie: Yearbook Three. While full details are still under wraps, we do know that it's taking place at Space15Twenty again this Saturday, February 21st from 5 to 9pm. No RSVP necessary, but we suggest you and your kid sister get there early.
