Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert’s new book More Than Two available on Amazon

I have not yet had the opportunity to read this master work of advice on how to lead a polyamorous life, but have been quite impressed with these folks for a long time and can’t wait to see what Eve and Franklin wrote. If you are excited to geek out on polyamory, I have a strong feeling that this is going to be the book for you.

Lesbian Women Wanted to Participate in a Research Project
 
My name is Dena Roberts and I am a lesbian woman. I am conducting a research study for my dissertation at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology and am recruiting lesbian women across the country to participate in the study, which examines how different types of trauma and stressors affect the mental and physical health of lesbian women. To participate you must identify yourself as a lesbian and be 18 years old or older.
 
If you meet the requirements to participate please visit the website:
 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NF3ND52LESBIANS  
 
If you know of someone who qualifies to participate, please pass this information on to her. I am dedicated to reaching the rich diversity of lesbian women. All are welcomed and encouraged to participate.
 
All information concerning the study is available on that site. The survey takes roughly 30 minutes.
 
Thank you for your time and consideration.

http://www.manuelstavern.com/

 

Social science nerds unite! Join us for the inaugural event in our new social science tavern series. Each month we’ll be gathering for drinks, discussion and games, with a different topic or speaker for each event.

 

For our first event we’ve got a polyamory double header, with three recently published authors on polyamory: Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert, authors of More Than Two, and Elisabeth Sheff, of The Polyamorists Next Door. They will talk about their books and take questions from the audience. After a quick break to get fresh drinks, everyone who sticks around can play Polyamory Jeopardy—and the winning team gets a free pitcher of beer!

 

Join us at Manuels to have a delicious dinner, help kick off the Atlanta Poly Weekend, and hear about the exciting new developments in the world of books on polyamory. Please RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/Atlanta-Social-Science-Tavern/events/182997582/
