Book Release Party January 10

Please join me for a party to celebrate the release of my new book, The Polyamorists Next Door: Inside Multiple-Partner Relationships and Families. The party happens January 10 from 7 to 9pm at The Phillip Rush Center / 1530 Dekalb Avenue, Suite A, Atlanta, GA 30307.

I will read from the new book and take questions from the audience, and we can snack on treats provided by Atlanta Polyamory, the co-sponsors of the event. Books will be for sale, and I will be happy to sign them for you if you wish.

Dr. Elisabeth Sheff, PhD, CASA, CSE

One of a handful of global experts on polyamory and the foremost international expert on children in polyamorous families, Dr. Elisabeth Sheff has studied gender and
families of sexual minorities for the last 16 years. Sheff’s television appearances include CNN, and the National Geographic, and she has given more than 20 radio, podcast, print, and television interviews with sources from Radio Slovenia to National Public Radio, the Sunday London Times to the Boston Globe and Newsweek. By emphasizing research methodology and findings in her discussions, Dr. Sheff presents the kind of public intellectualism that encourages audience members to think critically regarding gender, sexualities, and families.

  1. Uncle Ron, one of the several co-grand-parents of PolySouthEast says:

    I just finished reading your book, which I bought at your Atlanta book-signing in January. Thank you. As a writer and presenter who is aware of the education issues that you laid out in your book, I congratulate you for your thorough and easy-to-understand explanation of the vocabulary and theory of sociology which makes understanding the strategies of polyamory so much easier to grasp in the tactical moments when poly people are often without role models or past experience(s).
    I have been a reader and commentator on various poly lists for over 20 years and I learned several surprising factoids that I had not seen discussed nor analyzed during the hundreds of conversations in which I have participated. I very much appreciate your comprehensive emphasis that polyness is good for the children involved. You make very good points that the problems of polyamory are not unique to poly people, but are as common in the ordinary relationship paradigm of monotony, … excuse me, I meant to write monogamy. Old listserv habit, that slip of the fingers.
    Spread the word: polyamory expects higher attitudes and skills from all participants.

    1. Hey Uncle Ron,

      Thanks so much for your comments, I am really glad you enjoyed the book! Even more so, I appreciate your willingness to read and comment on the website. If you have time or inclination, I would love it if you would review the book on Amazon — you could even paste in what you wrote above if you wish.

      Thanks again. It is especially gratifying to hear that the book is useful after the professional price I paid for studying such an institutionally unpopular topic.

      Cheers, Eli
