MN Smith Club Reads: In Love: A Memoir of Love and Loss

Thursday, May 4 – 6:30pm CST
On Zoom*

Amy Bloom, Smith MSW ’78 and parent ’04, is an American writer and psychotherapist. Her most recent book is the widely acclaimed New York Times bestselling memoir, In Love. In Love also earned the distinction of being Time Magazine’s #1 Best Nonfiction Book of 2022 and Amazon’s Best Biographies and Memoirs of 2022.

In this heartbreaking and surprising memoir, Bloom sheds light on a part of life we so often shy away from discussing—its ending. Written in Bloom’s captivating, insightful voice and with her trademark wit and candor, In Love is an unforgettable portrait of a beautiful marriage, and a boundary-defying love. This powerful memoir by a New York Times bestselling author is an illuminating story of two people whose love and shared life experiences led them to find a courageous way to part—and of a woman’s struggle to go forward in the face of loss.

Amy Bloom is the author of four novels: White Houses, Lucky Us, Away, and Love Invents Us; and three collections of short stories: Where the God Of Love Hangs Out, Come to Me (finalist for the National Book Award), and A Blind Man Can See How Much I Love You (finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award). She is the Director of the Shapiro Center at Wesleyan University.
