Bring your Bestie to 2012’s first Girls’ Night Out event with author Rachel Bertsche, author of MWF Seeking BFF! When journalist Rachel first moved from New York to Chicago, she was thrilled to finally share a zip code, let alone an apartment, with her boyfriend. But shortly after getting married, Bertsche realized that her new life was missing one thing― friends. Tired of waiting for her new best friend to come knocking on her door, Bertsche took matters into her own hands, launching a year-long project: 52 girl-dates, one a week for twelve months, in search of her new best friend. In her hilarious memoir, Bertsche blends the story of her 52 girl-dates with the latest social research on the importance of friendship, to examine how difficult—and hilariously awkward (do you hug someone at the end of a friend date?)—it is to make new friends as an adult.
