About

Page 158 Books is excited to welcome author Molly Stillman to celebrate the release of her memoir, If I Don’t Laugh, I’ll Cry: How Death, Debt, and Comedy Led to a Life of Faith, Farming, and Forgetting What I Came into This Room For--out March 26th.

In this laugh-out-loud and heartfelt memoir, If I Don’t Laugh, I’ll Cry: How Death, Debt, and Comedy Led to a Life of Faith, Farming and Forgetting What I Came into This Room For, Molly Stillman shares her unforgettable story of growing up the daughter of a Vietnam Army nurse, losing her mother at age 17, squandering an unexpected quarter- of-a-million-dollar inheritance in less than two years, and pursuing her dream of being on Saturday Night Live but ending up on a farm instead. This journey of faith, hope, resilience and the power of laughter unfolds in an engaging and relatable narrative that resonates with readers from all walks of life.

Molly Stillman is the host of the Can I Laugh on Your Shoulder? podcast and a sought-after speaker. The lifestyle blog she started in 2007, Still Being Molly, is a community for women who love ethical style, clean beauty, parenting, funny stories and serving in their communities. Her deep passion lies in inspiring women to know they were created on purpose, with a purpose, and for a purpose. Molly lives with her husband John, children Lilly and Amos and various and sundry animals on a small farm in Durham. She loves Jesus a whole lot, drinks too much Diet Coke and eats a lot of Chipotle burritos.
