Lane Moore presents: How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don't

Event date: 
Tuesday, July 7, 2020 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Charis welcomes Lane Moore, the former Sex & Relationships Editor for Cosmopolitan and host of the wildly popular comedy show Tinder Live as she presents her poignant, funny, and deeply moving book, How to Be Alone: If You Want To, and Even If You Don't. The Lola's mission is to bring together womxn as allies and accomplices to tell our stories, raise our voices and dismantle a system that doesn't serve us. Click here to learn more. ​​​​​

From spending the holidays alone to having better “stranger luck” than with those closest to her to feeling like the last hopeless romantic on earth, Lane reveals her powerful and entertaining journey in all its candor, anxiety, and ultimate acceptance—with humor always her bolstering force and greatest gift.

How to Be Alone is a must-read for anyone whose childhood still feels unresolved, who spends more time pretending to have friends online than feeling close to anyone in real life, who tries to have genuine, deep conversations in a room full of people who would rather you not. Above all, it’s a book for anyone who desperately wants to feel less alone and a little more connected through reading her words.

This event takes place on crowdcast, Charis' virtual event platform.
