Topics and Guests – Meetings in Austin

img_6056The Good Life columnist Karen Kreps engaged the public and her special guests for conversations about relationships. Karen is the author of Intimacies: Secrets of Love, Sex & Romance.

Following is a list of the topics we’ve discussed and the special guests Karen has had at the public discussion groups that were sponsored by the The Good Life magazine at BookPeople, the state’s leading independent bookstore (named by Publisher’s Weekly as Bookstore of the Year in 2005). The purpose of the group was to build community by bringing readers together to talk about “Intimacies” face-to-face. We talked about love, sex and romance. The Intimacies Conversation Group, which was promoted by both the magazine and the bookstore, usually attracted groups of between twenty and forty people, singles and couples, first-timers and returnees, with a fairly even mix of men and women, ages eighteen to eighty.
