Join MashReads for a night of wine, cheese and books as we chat with author Emma Straub about her new book 'Modern Lovers' in our MashableHQ in New York City on June 15 at 6:30pm ET. (Full address in confirmation email).
Modern Lovers follows two families -- longtime friends and former college bandmates -- each confronting various crossroads in their friendships and marriages. There's Zoe and Jane, who are struggling to decide if they should stay together or not, and Elizabeth and Andrew, who are uncovering ghosts from their past while Andrew is in the midst of a midlife crisis.
But navigating their daily life is further complicated when a mysterious "yoga" studio pops up in the neighborhood and each family's child -- Ruby and Harry -- start hanging out more and more, resulting in what may be a modern day Romeo and Juliet story with a very Brooklyn twist.
Happy reading and we hope to see you there!
