I JUST HAVEN'T MET YOU YET with Tracy Strauss
Join author Tracy Strauss for an evening discussing love, life, and her new book, I Just Haven't Met You Yet.
About the Book
A Modern-Day Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Eat, Pray, Love, I Just Haven’t Met You Yet is written as an open love letter to the author’s future life partner, detailing Strauss’s dating history and her journey to dismantle the effects and stigmas of an abusive past, break free of destructive relationship patterns, and ultimately conquer her fear of truly being seen by the world, flaws and all. The author shares the transformative lessons she learned and self-empowerment she achieved while passing each hurdle along the way to finding the love of her life. Strauss helps readers empower themselves by taking a challenging look at the ways the negative events of their lives, including sexual harassment and abuse, have shaped their self-perception and created obstacles to personal success, and how readers can change that troubled self-image along with their (love) lives.
I Just Haven’t Met You Yet is a modern-day journey of the heart. It is a story about taking big risks, changing old habits and beliefs about dating, and speaking back to the naysayers, especially that internal critic, the inner love saboteur. It is a prime mover and the only epistolary memoir cum dating/relationship essay book of its kind.
I Just Haven’t Met You Yet has been blurbed by Sue Monk Kidd, Luis Alberto Urrea, Ann Hood, Meredith Goldstein, Leah Hager Cohen, Kaylie Jones, and others.
