Book Launch: Tim Kreider presents I Wrote This Book Because I Love You: Essays
In conversation with Meghan Daum
Wine reception to follow
Tim Kreider, New York Times essayist and author of We Learn Nothing, presents his latest collection of essays, I Wrote This Book Because I Love You. In this new collection, Kreider focuses his unique perception and wit on his relationships with women – romantic, platonic, and the murky in-between. With deft prose and uncanny observations, Kreider explores everything from his valued female friendships (including one which landed him on a circus train bound for Mexico) to his difficulty finding lasting love, and seeks to understand his commitment issues by tracking down the John Hopkins psychologist who tested him for a groundbreaking study on attachment when he was a toddler. Hilarious and profound, I Wrote This Book Because I Love You cements Kreider’s place among the best contemporary essayists. Kreider discusses his work with essayist Meghan Daum, author of The Unspeakable and My Misspent Youth. A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.
