About this Event

Join us for an evening of fine food and thought provoking discussion with author Laura Mucha at ArtHouse Jersey's beautiful new location - Greve de Lecq barracks.

Laura Mucha is the award-winning author of 'Love Factually: The Science of Who, How and Why we Love'

Event Date: Thursday 21th November

Time: 7.30pm for 8pm

Location: Greve de Lecq Barracks

Summary of event; A three course meal with wine and guided discussion. With Laura as a special guest, Love will, of course, be the order of the evening! Does love at first sight exist? Why do sparks fly? What qualities make for an ideal partner? These are all questions guests might playfully consider as they tuck into a feast of aphrodisiacal eats in the company of other like-minded foodies and friendly folk who are interested in finding out more about Love Factually: The Science of Who, How and Why We Love.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Poets, philosophers and artists have been trying to explain romantic love for centuries, but it remains one of the most complex and intimidating terrains to naviagate. Most people are afraid to be open and honest about their relationships...until now.

For Love Factually, Laura Mucha has interviewed hundreds of strangers, from the age of 8-95 in more than 40 countries, asking them to share their most personal stories, feelings and insights about love. These intimate and illuminating conversations raised important questions, such as:

How does your upbringing influence your relationships?

Does love at first sight exist? Should you 'just know'?

What should you look for in a partner?

Why do people cheat?

How do you know when it's time to walk away?

Drawing on psychology, philosophy, anthropology and statistics, Love Factually combines evidence, theory and everyday experience and is the perfect read for anyone who is curious about how we think, feel and behave when it comes to love.

Laura will be talking about her book as welll as what provoked her career change - from solicitor-advocate at an international law firm to award-winning poet, writer and speaker.
