Book Club Dates are Two Tuesday Evenings:

Tara Schuster, former Comedy Central executive and author of  Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies, will be meeting with the Happy Women Virtual Book Club over Zoom for 2 gatherings and moderated discussion.

Tuesday, September 22nd: 7:00 pm PST

First session is a 20 minute Welcome Introduction to the group before we begin reading the book.

Tuesday, October 13 : 7:00 pm PST

This session, after we have completed the book, is one hour. 

A Zoom link will be sent to you a few days before each meeting.

Brutally honest, often hilarious, hard-won lessons in learning to love and care for yourself from a young vice president at Comedy Central who was called “ahead of her time” by Jordan Peele

“Compelling, persuasive, and useful no matter where you are in your life.”

Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Life Will Be the Death of Me

“A bracingly honest, funny read . . . like Wild  meets You Are a Badass.”
—Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B

Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is the story of Tara’s path to re -parenting herself and becoming a “ninja of self-love.” Through simple, daily rituals, Tara transformed her mind, body, and relationships, and in this book, she shows how to

  • fake gratitude until you actually feel gratitude

  • excavate your emotional wounds and heal them with kindness

  • identify your self-limiting beliefs, kick them to the curb, and start living a life you choose

  • silence your inner frenemy and shield yourself from self-criticism

  • carve out time each morning to start your day empowered, inspired, and ready to rule

  • create a life you truly, totally f*cking LOVE

This is the book Tara wished someone had given her, and it is the book many of us desperately need: a candid, hysterically funny, addictively readable, practical guide to growing up (no matter where you are in life) and learning to love yourself in a non-throw-up-in-your-mouth-it’s-so-cheesy way.


By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing. She realized she’d hit rock bottom when she drunk -dialed her therapist pleading for help.
