12. That Thing Called Love

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Mandy Len Catron, Carrie Jenkins
Moderator: Timothy Taylor

When Bonnie Raitt sings “Are you ready for the thing called love/ Don’t come from me and you/ It comes from up above,” it could be she’s wrong. Love might indeed come from us. Vancouver writer Mandy Len Catron’s collection of candid essays, How to Fall in Love with Anyone, explores biologists’ research into dopamine triggers, looks at why we prefer certain love stories and tells of her own personal experiment using 36 key questions to create an intimate — and lasting — relationship. Carrie Jenkins, a UBC philosophy professor, examines love in all its manifestations, peppered with stories from her own experiences as a polyamorous woman, in What Love Is. You can wear your heart on your sleeve for this event!
