Lena Dunham, the perennial Millennial spokeswoman, is coming to Austin in support of her new collection of essays, Not That Kind of Girl. The creator and star of HBO's hits series Girls, Dunham's new book marks her first foray into publishing.

Over the course of the evening, Dunham will discuss her new book, which debuts on September 30. Not That Kind of Girl is being billed as Dunham's humorous take on issues ranging from sex to food to career, and everything in between. "I am a girl with a keen interest in having it all, and what follows are hopeful dispatches from the frontlines of that struggle," she writes.

The event kicks off at 6 pm on Sunday, October 12 at Central Presbyterian Church. Tickets are required for entry and can be purchased in-store at BookPeople or through the store's website. The $32 (plus tax) price tag gets you in the door and pre-signed copy of the book.

Not surprisingly, this Brooklyn-based star has a strong affinity for the Live Music Capital of the World. After a visit last fall in support of her boyfriend Jack Antonoff, who performed at ACL Live with his band FUN, Dunham tweeted her love for Austin.
