About this event

  • 1 hour

Boswell Book Company presents an evening with Christie Tate, author of B.F.F.: A Memoir of Friendship Lost and Found . In conversation with Christina Clancy.

After more than a decade of dead-end dates and dysfunctional relationships, Christie Tate’s days of agonizing in group therapy over guys who won't commit are over. Or so she thought. Weeks after giddily sharing stories of her new boyfriend at Saturday morning recovery meetings, Christie receives a gift from Meredith, twenty years older and always impeccably accessorized: a box of holiday-themed scarves as well as a gentle suggestion: maybe now is the perfect time to examine why friendships give her trouble. With Meredith by her side, she embarks on a brutally honest exploration of her friendships past and present, but when Meredith becomes ill and Christie's baggage threatens to muddy their final days, she's forced to face her deepest fears in honor of the woman who finally showed her how to be a friend.

From Publishers Weekly: "Readers will be moved by this outstanding portrait of self-excavation."

Christie Tate is the author of the New York Times bestseller Group, which was a Reese's Book Club selection. She has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and more.
