At this point, you've most likely read (and emailed it to every single person you know) Kate Bolick's super-popular essay, "All the Single Ladies," published last year the Atlantic, in which she takes apart the concept of marriage as the ultimate ideal. Tonight, she leads an n+1 panel with Eric Klinenberg (Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone) and Daniel Smith (Muses, Madmen, and Prophets), wherein they'll discuss the benefits and non-benefits of marriage in this day and age.
