Kaling ’01 explores social concerns and paranoia in new book

by Katherine Armstrong

09 Nov 2011

Do you ever roam the halls of the Choates awk­wardly wan­der­ing by floor pregames and won­der­ing if your evite got lost in the mail? Mindy Kaling ’01, Dart­mouth grad and hi­lar­i­ous ac­tress who plays Kelly Kapoor on “The Of­fice” (and writes for it too!) won­ders about stuff like this, and hon­estly so do a lot of Dart­mouth stu­dents.

Kaling has ac­tu­ally been pretty so­cial lately, chat­ting with every­one from NPR to Newsweek in an­tic­i­pa­tion of her new book “Is Every­one Hang­ing Out With­out Me? (And Other Con­cerns).” The ’01 is get­ting lots of na­tional at­ten­tion and we’re look­ing for­ward to grab­bing a copy of her work, which hit shelves on Nov. 1.

If you’re feel­ing down, just re­mind your­self that peo­ple at Dart­mouth got here by being that girl/guy that was far too busy to even take a cof­fee break from study­ing. It’s prob­a­bly not per­sonal that all your “lunch after 12s any­one?” texts go unan­swered, but just in case it is per­sonal, I rec­om­mend putting a “Miss­ing” poster up of your­self and see if any­one calls you to be sure that your friends still care. Mindy would be proud of you.
