Just in time for Valentine's Day, Dr. Ruth Westheimer introduces an evening stories about love and relationships by Andrea Barrett, Marie-Helene Bertino, Isabel Allende, David Galef and Sam Ruddick. Actors including Peter Sagal (Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!), Kathleen Turner (Californication), Giullian Yao Gioiello (The Carrie Diaries), Colby Minifie (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), and showbiz sweethearts Dylan Baker (The Americans) and Becky Ann Baker (Girls) bring to life mannered tales of chivalry alongside modern rituals of speed dating and anonymous encounters online. In a special twist, we present real looking-for-love profiles from OK Cupid.
Please note: There will not be a public book signing following this event.
