P&P Live! Meg Bashwiner & Joseph Fink — The First Ten Years - in conversation with Dylan Marron

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 6:00pm

In this candid, soul-baring memoir, Joseph and Meg recount their first ten years together, each telling their story as they remember it, without having consulted the other. We hear both sides of their first kiss, first breakup, first getting back together, the death of a father, marriage, international fame, world tours, mental illness, and discussions about having children. Sometimes, they recall things differently—neither agrees on who paid for the morning after pill on their first date. Sometimes they remember the exact same details in the same way—but still have their own narrative on just what those details mean.

Poignant, funny, and real, alternately told in Joseph and Meg’s remarkably different, yet equally compelling voices, The First Ten Years  is the story of two individuals finding their way in the world and becoming "adults" as they learn to become a couple.

Meg Bashwiner is a writer, performer, producer and tour manager. She lives in The Hudson River Valley and Los Angeles.

Joseph Fink is the creator of the Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn't Dead podcasts, and the New York Times bestselling author of Welcome to Night Vale, It Devours!, and The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home (all written with Jeffrey Cranor), and Alice Isn’t Dead. He is also the author of the middle-grade novel, The Halloween Moon. He and his wife, Meg Bashwiner, have written the memoir The First Ten Years. They live together in the Hudson River Valley.

Bashwiner and Fink will be in conversation with Dylan Marron, a Webby winning digital creator. He hosts and produces the podcast Conversations with People Who Hate Me. His forthcoming book Snowflake will be published by Atria in 2022.
