Watch the Boston Book Festival's special live meeting event. Maybe you’ve always turned to books in times of trouble, or perhaps you’re learning the hard way that a global pandemic is bringing to light troubles you didn’t even know you had (who knew your spouse used so much jargon on conference calls?). Trusted bibliotherapist Ella Berthoud has the unique ability to recommend the perfect book for many of life’s most unexpected predicaments. During this lively online event, Ella, co-author of The Novel Cure: From Abandonment to Zestlessness: 751 Books to Cure What Ails You, will join us to “prescribe” books based on attendees’ situations or questions; register in advance to submit your story to Ella ahead of time, and maybe you, too, will discover that books are the best medicine! Bartender and bookseller Nick Petrulakis will start the evening off with a different sort of tonic—he’ll demonstrate how to make a literary-themed cocktail using ingredients you probably already have in your pantry or fridge! Presented by Cambridge Community Television on Facebook Live.
