One in a Millennial book cover

by Kate Kennedy

Publication date: January 23, 2024
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Hardcover: 336 Pages

Publisher Description

From pop culture podcaster and a voice of a generation, Kate Kennedy, a celebration of the millennial zeitgeist.

One In a Millennial 
is an exploration of pop culture, nostalgia, the millennial zeitgeist, and the life lessons learned (for better and for worse) from coming of age as a member of a much-maligned generation.

Kate is a pop culture commentator and host of the popular millennial-focused podcast Be There in Five. Part-funny, part-serious, Kate navigates the complicated nature of celebrating and criticizing the culture that shaped her as a woman, while arguing that great depths can come from surface-level interests.

With her trademark style and vulnerability, One In a Millennial is sharp, hilarious, and heartwarming all at once. She tackles AOL Instant Messenger, purity culture, American Girl Dolls, going out tops, Spice Girl feminism, her feelings about millennial motherhood, and more. Kate’s laugh-out-loud asides and keen observations will have you nodding your head and maybe even tearing up.

“A perceptive personal meditation on the late 1990s and early 2000s pop culture that shaped her childhood… Kennedy provides memoir by way of cultural commentary, cleverly using her hybrid approach to highlight the ways in which trends and media popular during one’s formative years profoundly influence one’s identity. Told with wit and candor, this will strike a chord with Gen Yers.― Publishers Weekly

[A] hilariously relatable―and subversively smart―book that’s hard to put down…With silly stories that turn into omg insights, this is a nostalgia-filled romp―about American Girl dolls, the Spice Girls, and finding your place in a culture that has turned those born in the ’80s and ’90s into scapegoats.
