Join bestselling author Jennifer Keishin Armstrong (Seinfeldia, Sex and the City and US), writer and comedian Monica Heisey (Really Good, Actually; Schitt’s Creek) and local cast members for a nostalgic, behind-the-scenes look at Mean Girls on its twentieth anniversary.

Relive legendary moments from the film on our big screen as Jennifer and Monica explore the exclusive new stories from the cast and writers in Jennifer's hotly anticipated new book, So Fetch: The Making of Mean Girls (And Why We're Still So Obsessed With It).

Learn how this iconic teen comedy (shot in Toronto!) reshaped the pop culture landscape, impacting everything from Y2K tabloids to LGBTQ+ culture to the language we use to define female friendships and rivalries, before catching up with local cast members Jan Caruana, Chris "Nice wig, Janis, what's it made of?" Anton, Stefanie "I Wore Army Pants and Flip Flops" Drummond and David "Glenn Coco" Reale for some exclusive dirt on what really went down on the set of this modern classic.

Whether you’re a regular mom or a cool mom, you won't want to miss this rollicking retrospective celebrating what makes Mean Girls so fetch.

And remember, on Wednesdays we wear pink.


Moderated by writer and comedian Monica Heisey (Really Good, Actually; Schitt’s Creek). Featuring special guests Jan Caruana, Chris Anton, Stefanie Drummond and David Reale.
