Female Friendships

It’s safe to say that this is the year for female friendships. From best-selling to recent studies from the University of Michigan and UCLA showing that female friendships actually help your health (not to mention, the recent news that Friends will be made into a movie, plus the long-awaited sequel to Sex and the City), gal pals are hogging headlines across the country.

Portland author Megan McMorris has taken this concept and put it into an anthology of 36 unsent letters. While compiling her collection for P.S. What I Didn’t Say: Unsent Letters to Our Female Friends she literally sifted through hundreds of letters.

Megan has a book reading coming up at Powell's Hawthorne at 7:30 tonight. Three contributors will be reading:

*Jane Hodges finally realizes that it's time to cut the chord from her Statler and Waldorf, "misery loves company" friend (page 75)
*Sarah Bowen Shea gives the ultimate "send-off" letter to her friend who always belittled her nose in an oh-so-subtle way growing up (page 119)
*Michelle Goodman finds herself obsessing over when she becomes Facebook friends with someone from her past (and whether she's sending virtual pitchers of beer to her old boyfriend that she stole from her one manic summer) (page 49)
