Wednesday, February 12, 7pm


Funny Short Stories for Heart-Breakers, the Broken-Hearted and the Completely Utterly Confused


Whether you’re headed to that exciting first date where you’ll inevitably spill Cabernet all over yourself or you and your significant other are celebrating Date Night #4,081 with an extra pint of Halo Top, everyone can agree on one thing: Love Stinks.
How to escape the endless cycle of melancholy? Well, you probably can’t. What you can do is take comfort in humorist Alex Bernstein’s new collection of stories about miserable mad crushes, amorous infidelities and bittersweet romances.

Hear stories of horrific bridesmaids’ dresses, strange love at airports, awkward confessions, manic pixie dream girls, uncomfortable road
trips, the bizarre state of future sex and, of course, true, everlasting love. So, curl up with your favorite valentine and enjoy such titles as:

  • Circle in the Square
  • The Qualified Apology
  • The Eight Hour Kiss
  • Sexpo 2041
  • Come Home Soon
  • My Annoying Mother

Commiserate lost love and painfully awkward first dates with Miserable Love Stories!
