Stop what you're doing right now! Lena Dunham has just announced her book tour for her upcoming collection of essays, out September 30th, entitled "Not That Kind of Girl." Cue celebratory dance and requisite trips to Barnes and Nobles around the country. As someone with experience camping out in bookstores for midnight releases (I'm lookin' at you Harry Potter's four through seven) I can confidently say this reading and Q&A will rank amongst the top. Tina Fey's autographed "Bossy Pants" will have to share the rad female autobiographical shelf with Ms. Dunham's debut book.

For you BUSTies who are more musically or performance inclined, the tour is looking for "singular acts" to open for several cities along the way. Visit her website for video submission information.  

And last but not least, there will be numerous other female authors, actresses and professionals joining Lena on her Not That Kind of Tour stops, including our current BUST cover girl Carrie Brownstein, so check out the list below to see when and where you can meet some of the entertainment industry's most badass babes!
