Two Evenings with Deborah Tannen

Posted By Mary Thorsby, Thursday, July 20, 2017

Tuesday, August 15    |    5:30-7:30 p.m.    |    Deloitte    |    San Jose


Wednesday, August 16    |    5:30-7:30 p.m.    |    Fitbit    |    San Francisco


We've had such great response to our upcoming Evening with Deborah Tannen at Deloitte in San Jose that we've added a second event the next night at Fitbit in San Francisco! So now you have two opportunities to bring friends and enjoy this special event.

In her new book, You’re the Only One I Can Tell: Inside the Language of Women's Friendships, Deborah Tannen, renowned linguist at Georgetown University and a regular on The New York Times bestseller list, deconstructs the ways women friends talk and how those ways can bring friends closer or pull them apart. From casual chatting to intimate confiding, from talking about problems to telling what you had for dinner, Deborah uncovers the patterns of communication and miscommunication that affect friendships at different points in our lives.

Drawing on interviews with 80 women of diverse backgrounds, ranging in age from nine to 97, You’re the Only One I Can Tell gets to the heart of women’s friendships – how they work or fail, how they help or hurt and how we can make them better.

Add the book to your summer reading list and join us for a Watermark evening with Deborah and those closest to you!
