Meredith Goldstein, advice columnist and entertainment reporter for the Boston Globe, will be at the South End library on October 1 at 6:30 PM, to talk about her memoir, Can’t Help Myself: Lessons and Confessions From a Modern Advice Columnist. Her Love Letters advice column has been running online and in the paper since 2009. Can’t Help Myself is based on the author’s column in the Boston Globe and includes stories about work romances, millennial friends, sickness and health, and grilled cheese. The column runs Monday to Friday on Boston.com, and in the print edition of the Boston Globe on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Previous novels include Chemistry Lessons, a young-adult novel about a young woman who uses science to manipulate her love life; and The Singles, about a group of dateless guests at a wedding. Goldstein has been interviewed by – and written for – the Washington Post, Bustle, Elite Daily, Apartment Therapy, Shondaland, and Real Simple.
