Events at The Wharf
Monday, February 3, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

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.

In his follow-up to Everything Trump Touches Dies, the legendary Republican strategist and ad-maker draws on his thirty years as a political insider to tell Democrats what they must do—and how they should do it—to win the White House in 2020. Starting with the warning that the left must "put electoral realities ahead of progressive fantasies” and run a campaign that makes the election a referendum on Trump rather than a debate over policy issues, Wilson unleashes his signature mix of strategic advice and satirical asides for a scathing assessment of both Trump’s administration and the Democrats’ mistakes of 2016.
