Mandy Len Catron presents How to Fall in Love with Anyone
Wine reception to follow
In 2015 Mandy Len Catron wrote a piece for the New York Times Modern Love column called “To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This” chronicling how she fell in love using a 36-question questionnaire meant to facilitate intimacy between strangers. It became an immediate sensation: 400,000 Facebook shares and over 8 million reads online in its first month. In How to Fall in Love with Anyone, Mandy further probes the romantic myths we create and explains how they limit our ability to achieve and sustain intimacy. In a series of illuminating essays, she takes a closer look at what it means to love someone, be loved, and how we present our love to the world, deconstructing her own personal canon of love stories along the way. Alain de Botton calls Catron, “a voice of good sense, warm humor, and consoling wisdom.” Catron presents her work, followed by a wine reception.
