As the host of WNYC’s award-winning podcast Death, Sex, & Money, Anna Sale leads mind-expanding interviews with cultural luminaries and tells intimate, life-affirming stories about the topics that most of us are too squeamish, polite, or nervous to bring up. To her millions of listeners, she’s a source of both comfort and delight— “a therapist at happy hour,” as The New York Times dubbed her. Join Anna as she sits down with Aminatou Sow, host of the equally beloved Call Your Girlfriend podcast and co-author of the bestselling book Big Friendship, to discuss her anticipated new book Let’s Talk About Hard Things. A stirring blend of memoir and reporting from Anna’s podcast, the book is a touching meditation on the growth that can come from discussing life’s most difficult subjects. Don’t miss this meeting of brilliant minds, as Anna and Aminatou discuss what we can all learn about ourselves, and each other, when we really get personal.
Presented in partnership with Simon & Schuster Canada and Flying Books, as well as select independent booksellers across Canada.
