Mollen It Over

Wait, where do we know you from?

We have a feeling actress Jenny Mollen is asked that a lot. And it's certainly not for her lack of being places. You might've spotted her on the latest season of Girls (as an actress in a Broadway play), and she played Nina on Angel. And also, she is from Phoenix. So there's that.

Mollen returns to the Valley of the Sun with her new book, I Like You Just the Way I Am: Stories About Me and Some Other People ($24.99). It's a collection of Mollen's life experiences, including that one time she hired a hooker for her husband's Vegas birthday. Note: Said husband is Jason Biggs of American Pie and Orange Is the New Black fame. We wonder whether a home-baked good would've sufficed.

Regardless, Mollen will sign her memoir at Changing Hands, 6428 South McClintock Drive, and then you'll be able to say you know her from there, too. A ticket for two is free with purchase of her book. For more, visit or call 480-730-0205.
