This Is Now: Friendship in the Age of Loneliness

May 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm PDT


How do you make and keep friendships of a lifetime? Angie Coiro interviews Adam “Smiley” Poswolsky on Friendship in the Age of Loneliness.

About this Virtual Event

Research has shown that people with close friends are happier, healthier, and live longer than people who lack strong social bonds. Despite this, the average American hasn’t made a new friend in the past five years.

Why— when we are seemingly more connected than ever before— can it feel so difficult to create and maintain strong friendships? Why do we spend only four percent of our time with friends?

Millennial workplace expert and friendship visionary Adam “Smiley” Poswolsky proposes a new solution for the mounting pressures of this modern life: focus on your friendships.

In an hour-long interview with journalist-in-residence Angie Coiro about Friendship in the Age of Loneliness, this wonderful author offers practical habits and playful reminders on how to create meaningful connections, make new friends, and deepen relationships. Smiley will help you revisit your relationship with technology, encourage you to prioritize real-world experiences, send snail mail, and really see your friends. In doing this, he shares the key to a good life—a happier, healthier, longer, richer life.
