With the help of my student, Claire, we have started the Best Forevers Book Club series, which will include episodes where we read books from our childhood (mine in the 80s/90s and Claire's in the early/mid 00's).

Fill out this survey if you'd like to suggest a book for a future episode of the Best Forevers Book Club or you would like to share a story about the impact of a particular book on your life and friendships.
I've always thought men's friendships were interesting. First, I think they're often ignored and neglected! Second, I think men's friendships are compared to women's friendships and, thus, considered less than. Third, bromance is a label that seems both problematic and necessary. Overall, I value men's friendships and was so happy to talk to my friend, Dr. Jonathan Bowman, about men's friendships in Episode 5: Male Friendships with a Capital F! So, complete this survey if you have a story to share or want to sound off about bromances and men's friendships!
