I've mentioned it several times here, but I finally need to write my official review of Carrie Jenkins' What Is Love: And What Could It... Read more Remember last month when I reviewed that Carrie Jenkins book, What Love Is: And What It Could Be? Remember how at the end of that post, I mentioned that I met the author at her reading in Vancouver BC, and it turns out that she's an Offbeat Empire reader, and we got into crazy conversations about love, marriage, feminism, monogamy, consent and cultural narratives, interracial pairings and racism, and MOAR!? Ok, maybe you don't remember any of that. And maybe you didn't follow along in the comments where this happened: OK! So thanks to Kate's suggestion (THANK YOU, KATE!) this is now a thing that is happening in two weeks, on Monday July 24th, 2017 in the Offbeat Empire's homeplace of Capitol Hill, Seattle. Here's everything you need to know: WHEN Monday, July 24 2017 from 7 PM – 9 PM Doors at 6pm if you want to come mingle and have a drink! WHERE The Lab at Ada's Technical Books 425 15th Ave E, Seattle, Washington 98112 WHAT WE'LL BE TALKING ABOUT: So, a philosopher of love and a divorced wedding blogger walk into a bar…and start a conversation about love. What is Love? This question has plagued philosophers, authors, artists, musicians and dreamy-eyed, socially awkward teenagers alike since the beginning of time. But WHAT IS IT? Is it your pounding heart? Your sweaty palms? The butterflies in your stomach? The level of intimacy that lets you fart in front of your S.O. and laugh about it? Author Carrie Jenkins and Offbeat Empire Founder Ariel Meadow Stallings talk about Carrie’s book What Love Is and What it Could Be. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll hope, we’ll commiserate as we discuss the history, science, philosophy and politics of love. Here's the Facebook event, if you're into that kind of thing. TICKETS: $5 …or $35 if you want to snag a signed hardback copy of Carrie's book! This event will definitely sell out (capacity at The Lab is only about 40 people) so you'll want to snag your tickets soon. Get tickets!
