Event description

Description

Is your smartphone the first thing you look at in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed? Are your reading this description on your phone right now? Join award-winning author and journalist Catherine Price for an interactive evening based on her newest book, How to Break Up With Your Phone: The 30-Day Plan to Take Back Your Life, which is coming out in February from Ten Speed Press and is scheduled to be published in more than 20 countries and translated into more than 15 languages.

After revealing some of the many ways in which our smartphones are affecting our abilities to think clearly, focus and remember, Price will lead the audience through a speed breakup, providing practical and philosophical suggestions for how we can keep using the good parts of our phones while minimizing the parts the make us feel bad. The goal isn’t to throw your phone under a bus; it’s to create a healthy, long-term relationship. To learn more about the book and the breakup, please visit phone breakup.com.

Catherine Price’s work has been published in The Best American Science Writing, The New York Times, The Washington Post Magazine, Popular Science, The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Salon, Slate, Men’s Journal, Parade and O, The Oprah Magazine, among many other publications. Her previous books include Vitamania: How Vitamins Revolutionized the Way We Think About Food and a parody travel guide called 101 Places Not to See Before You Die.
