But I'm a Gilmore! is a never-before-seen collection of stories and experiences from members of the cast, and crew who worked on Gilmore Girls, as well as Gilmore Girls fans―how they came to the show, why it resonates, and what it means to them - their 'Gilmore story'.

This book takes shape in three main sections: the three ‘C’s:

  • Cast and Crew: It’s a Show
  • Creators: It’s a Lifestyle
  • Cult Followers: It’s a Religion

The first section ‘Cast and Crew’ contains the Gilmore stories of producers, editors, directors, cameramen, costumers, dialogue coaches, and of course, actors. This section takes you on a journey through the memories of those whose role on the show was integral, but who have previously been overlooked. This is especially true for crew members, some of whom were present full-time over many years, but who have not shared their experiences of working on the show until now.

The second section, ‘Creators’ is focused on those fans whose love for Gilmore Girls has been so profound that they have turned their interest in the show into some kind of work, hobby, or passion project - into a lifestyle. In this section you will read about how the Fan Fest Society (formerly Gilmore Girls Fan Fest) came together, how one man decided to compile a list of every location on the show, how one woman opened a Gilmore Girls themed furniture store, and how fans became merchants of Gilmore Girls inspired items.

The third and final section, ‘Cult Fans’ explores the Gilmore stories of those who watch the show. You will hear how Gilmore Girls got fans through college, divorce, family deaths, depression, accidents, and illness. You will read about a fan who had a Gilmore Girls wedding, a soldier who discovered the show while deployed in Iraq, and a high school teacher who recreated the Festival of Living Arts in her history classroom. The stories in this section represent a diverse age and geographical spread, with fans from all over the world sharing what the show means to them.

As you read these collected stories from cast and crew, creators and cult fans, I hope that you will find within their stories the inherent oneness that unifies all those who touch, or are touched by, the show. Those whose lives have intersected with Gilmore Girls appear to be all cut from the same cloth, and are part of a wider community that has been shaped by the unique character of the show. They are the global citizens of Gilmore Girls, who each have a story to tell, and a life that has developed in some way through their exposure to the show, and their love for it. For these inhabitants of the Gilmore verse, it is so much more than a television show. It’s a lifestyle, it’s a religion, it’s a family.
