In It's Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise, which airs Monday night on HBO, Dunham talks about what the book series about the six-year-old girl who lives at the Plaza meant to her, shows off her Eloise tattoo and explains how she and Knight met, with the latter sending her a letter after discovering that she had a tattoo of one of his most famous characters.
