TYPE: Author Reception

Deborah Tannen, author of The New York Times bestseller You Just Don’tUnderstand, will talk about her new book, You’re the Only One I Can Tell: Inside the Language of Women’s Friendships. Based on stories and conversations gleaned while interviewing 80 women ranging in age from 9 to 97 — stories that are as amusing as they are revealing — Tannen illustrates patterns of communication and mis-communication that affect friendships at different stages of women’s lives. In her talk, she also will explore how insights into women’s friendships shed light on the double bind that affects women in positions of authority, and the role it played in the 2016 election.

The book will be available for purchase and signing.

PRICE: $20 Members; $25 Non-members. Includes Hors d’Oeuvres. Cash Bar.
