Rhaina Cohen presents The Other Significant Others: Reimagining Life with Friendship at the Center 
In conversation with Priya Parker 

This Valentine's Day season, we're taking a pause from romance to talk about friendship. In The Other Significant Others, NPR's Rhaina Cohen invites us into the lives of people who have defied convention by choosing a friend as a life partner—these are friends who are home co-owners, co-parents or each other’s caregivers. Platonic partners from different walks of life—spanning age and religion, gender and sexuality and more—reveal how freeing and challenging it can be to embrace a relationship model that society doesn't recognize. Based on years of original reporting and striking social science research, Cohen insists that we recognize the many forms of profound connection that can anchor our lives. A rousing and incisive book, The Other Significant Others challenges us to ask what we want from our relationships—not just what we’re supposed to want—and transforms how we define a fulfilling life.  Cohen discusses her work with Priya Parker (author of The Art of Gathering), and we hope you (and maybe a friend) will join us for a celebration of platonic love.
