"Get Lit After Work"—Kate Bolick Reads From Spinster

THU, JUL 14, 2016 (39:42)

Boston Literary District launches “Get Lit After Work,” a pop-up literary biergarten in front of the Cheers bar in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace with Kate Bolick, author of the New York Times bestseller, Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own.

“Whom to marry, and when will it happen—these two questions define every woman’s existence.” So begins Spinster, a revelatory and slyly erudite look at the pleasures and possibilities of remaining single. Using her own experiences as a starting point, journalist and cultural critic Kate Bolick invites us into her carefully considered, passionately lived life, weaving together the past and present to examine why­ she—along with over 100 million American women, whose ranks keep growing—remains unmarried.
