Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema Wed, Mar 22, 2023 7:00 PM


Join author Monica Heisey and some of Toronto's most talented storytellers for a night of live stories and conversation celebrating the Canadian launch of her internationally bestselling novel, Really Good, Actually.

Forged from the same cultural DNA as touchstones like Fleabag, Schitt's Creek and Bridget Jones's Diary, the book tells the irresistible story of Maggie, a 29-year-old divorcée barrelling through her first year of singledom, and has been praised by critics and cultural tastemakers (Lena Dunham, B.J Novak and Sweetbitter's Stephanie Danler, to name just a few) for its honest and hilarious portrait of a life gone off the rails.


Monica will take the Hot Docs stage with a cast of very funny friends—including Gawker's Sarah Hagi (moderator), Nobody Cares author Anne T. Donahue, Workin' Moms' Dani Kind and Meredith MacNeill of Baroness von Sketch Show and Pretty Hard Cases.

Monica Heisey's Really Good, Actually will be available to purchase at the event via TYPE Books.
