THE SCIENCE OF LOVE: MICHELE A’COURT
It’s the question everyone eventually asks of a couple: How did you meet? The answer, more often than not elicits a retelling that author and comedian Michele A’Court argues recreates the experience of first-sight passion. In her new book How We Met: The Ways Great Love Begins, NZ couples talk about their first encounters, and scientists describe the ways in which we encode and reframe memories. In this interactive session, stories of “romantic, absurd, serendipitous, convoluted, scandalous, breathtaking” collisions take centre stage.
