SPA To Host Jennette McCurdy For November 10 Lecture

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host former actress and bestselling author Jennette McCurdy for a free lecture at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 10, in Schwab Auditorium.

Students must RSVP for the event and get tickets, which will be available at 7 p.m. on November 7 through OrgCentral.

McCurdy is best known for her role as Sam Puckett on the television sitcom “iCarly,” as well as dozens of other series and short films. McCurdy retired from acting in 2018 in order to pursue more serious roles as a writer and director.

Most recently, McCurdy published her memoir “I’m Glad My Mom Died” in August, which garnered a lot of media attention and topped the New York Times Best Seller list for eight consecutive weeks. The book explores her life as a child actress, her diagnoses of obsessive-compulsive, eating, and anxiety disorders, and the troubled relationship she had with her mother.

McCurdy was named to the 2022 Time100 Next list in September and is currently working on new projects that include a feature film and fiction novel.

McCurdy’s lecture is free for Penn State students and funded by their student-initiated fee.
