Upcoming Event
Monday, August 10, 2020 - 8:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

This event is presented in partnership with Girls Night In.

Two friends, Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, tell the story of their equally messy and life-affirming "Big Friendship" in this honest and hilarious book that chronicles their first decade in one another’s lives. As the hosts of the hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend, they’ve become known for frank and intimate conversations. In this book, they bring that energy to their own friendship—its joys and its pitfalls.

An inspiring and entertaining testament to the power of society’s most under-appreciated relationship, Big Friendship will invite you to think about how your own bonds are formed, challenged, and preserved. It is a call to value your friendships in all of their complexity. Actively choose them. And, sometimes, fight for them.

Moderating the conversation will be Samhita Mukhopadhyay, Executive Editor of Teen Vogue. She is also the co-editor of Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America the author of Outdated: Why Dating is Ruining Your Love Life. Her work has appeared in Vanity FairAllureJezebelNew York, Vogue IndiaAl JazeeraThe Guardian, and The Nation.


Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business. 

The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a book from our website.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
