LOCAL>> Anna Sale – Let's Talk About Hard Things

Podcaster/author discusses her book about fraught conversations with Lori Gottlieb

There’s always a conversation no one wants to have, whether it’s about a tricky financial situation, failing relationships or the often-avoided topic of aging.

As the host of the WYNC podcast “Death, Sex and Money,” Anna Sale invites people to talk precisely and openly about these uncomfortable topics in a larger effort to foster solidarity and connection with one another.

In her new book Let’s Talk About Hard Things, Sale highlights five themes to explain how and why we should conduct these fraught conversations: death, sex, money, family and identity. When we shed the expectations of “polite conversation,” she argues, we can have important and life-changing dialogues.

At INFORUM, Sale will elaborate on the complexities and advantages of talking, as her book title suggests, about hard things. This conversation will be moderated by Lori Gottlieb, author of the New York Times best-seller Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.
