Lydia Denworth - Friendship: The Evolution, Biology, and Extraordinary Power of Life's Fundamental Bond — in conversation with Judith Warner — at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Monday, February 3, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Denworth, a contributing editor for Scientific American, follows Toxic Truth and I Can Hear You Whisper with a scientific look at friendship. Combining neuroscience, biology, psychology, sociology, and genetics, Denworth traces the evolutionary history of friendship, showing how our bodies and minds are primed to develop and sustain social connections throughout our lives, and how loneliness can weaken our immune and cardiovascular systems and even kill us. She also outlines the physical processes by which friendships are developed and maintained, looks at how social media are changing the nature of our close connections, and charts the role of companionship and cooperation in the creation of society itself. Denworth will be in conversation with Judith Warner, author of Perfect Madness.
