Tina Fey Reveals the Hidden World Of GirlsMonica Bielanko
I’ll pretty much watch or listen to Tina Fey do anything. She should be declared the official Ambassador of Womanhood or something like that.
Now, the woman who brought us countless hours of Saturday Night Live laughs and kept the chuckles coming with her current sitcom, 30 Rock, is taking us inside the hidden world of girls.
As Jezebel reports, “From the dunes of the Sahara to a slumber party in Manhattan, from the dance halls of Jamaica to a racetrack in Ramallah, Tina Fey takes us around the world into the secret life of girls and the women they become. Sound-rich, evocative, funny, and powerful — stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, blazed a trail, changed the tide.”
Two hour-long specials, The Hidden World Of Girls shows are produced in collaboration with NPR and independent producers from around the world. They were inspired by The Hidden World of Girls series heard on Morning Edition and All Things Considered and will feature the best stories from that series as well as new, never-before-heard features, interviews and music.
When I moved across the country, I listened to Fey’s book, Bossypants, on CD. She voices it and does a fantastic job, so I’ll bet she kicks some serious butt when she gets her NPR on. You can take a listen here.
