Lena Dunham's book tour was never going to be boring. But, today's announcement about the multi-city promotional tour for Not That Kind Of Girl has us even more jazzed for the book's release. Every reading of Dunham's memoir will also include a special guest in the conversation. Think: Curtis Sittenfeld, Mary Karr, Carrie Brownstein, Zadie Smith, Amy Schumer — y'know, the usual.

On top of that, Dunham is currently calling out for "opening acts!" Check out her official site and submit a video doing whatever it is you're good at (dramaturgy, Tibetan throat singing, the 64th level of Candy Crush Saga) and you could be chosen to open for Ms. D at one of the eleven stops she's making this fall. The tour also promises to bring you more info on "organizations close to Lena's heart, including a special partnership with Planned Parenthood."

The tour kicks off in NYC on September 30 and runs through October 21. Check out the full schedule here. Said Dunham this morning, "This is the only party I've ever been excited about." Us too, Lena. Times infinity.
