When Style Rookie first hit the web, blogger Tavi Gevinson was a disarming 11-year-old wearing Marc Jacobs and Lagerfeld. Five years later, she's a little more grown up -- and she's ditched that Anna Wintour haircut. Gevinson is still one of the most precocious and fashionable teenagers in the world, but she uses her online magazine, Rookie, to explore other adolescent-friendly topics, including pop culture and feminism. In conjunction with Drawn and Quarterly, she is launching Rookie Yearbook Two, a collection of personal essays by young girls and various other icons, from Lena Dunham to Morrissey to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Gevinson hosts a release event at Skylight Books, complete with readings, conversations with the magazine contributors and a book signing. Guests must purchase a copy of Rookie Yearbook Two directly from Skylight in order to obtain Gevinson's signature. Skylight Books, 1818 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz; Thurs., Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m.; free, book is $29.95. (323) 660-1175, skylightbooks.com.
