Rachel Friedman presents And Then We Grew Up: On Creativity, Potential, and the Imperfect Art of Adulthood

In conversation with Meg Leder
Reception to follow

What happens when early artistic promise doesn’t materialize into fame and fortune? In search of answers, Rachel Friedman (The Good Girl’s Guide to Getting Lost) decided to track down her former campmates from the prestigious Interlochen Arts Camp—actors, writers, musicians, and more—to find out how their own creative promise has translated into adult careers, relationships, and identities. Each of these individuals reveals important insights about creativity: that it doesn't have to be all or nothing, that success isn't always linear, that sometimes it's okay to quit. And Then We Grew Up provides a warm and whip-smart way forward for anyone struggling to write, play music, or make art, while also balancing things like having a family, making rent, and finding contentment. Joining her in conversation is her editor and YA author, Meg Leder, followed by a reception.
