What keeps us together? What breaks us apart? In Love Me True, 27 creative nonfiction writers and 20 poets explore how marriage and committed relationships have challenged, shaped, supported and changed them. The stories and poems in this collection delve deep into the mysteries of long-term bonds. The authors cover a gamut of issues and ideas–everything from everyday conflicts to deep philosophical divides, as well as jealousy, adultery, physical or mental illness, and loss. There’s happiness here too, along with love and companionship, whether the long-term partnering is monogamous, polyamorous, same-sex or otherwise. From surprise proposals, stolen quickies, and snoring to arranged marriage, affairs, suicide, and much more, the wide-ranging personal stories and poems in "Love Me True" offer their intimate and varied insights into the complex state that is marriage.
Readers from this event include: Ayelet Tsabari, Eufemia Fantetti, Maureen Hynes, Ronna Bloom, Betsy Warland, Samra Zafar, Maureen Scott Harris, Lauren McKeon, as well as Fiona Tinwei Lam and Jane Silcott.
