First Love, Take Two

Mar 13, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

What Publisher’s Weekly calls a “swoon-worthy love story” and a Texas Book Festival and Austin360 Book Club pick, FIRST LOVE, TAKE TWO takes readers on a journey with Preeti as her medical residency comes to an end and the rigorous and emotional toll creates spiraling anxiety. Add to the fact that her roommate is her ex and love of her life, and a whole new level of challenges could unravel everything she’s worked so hard for. Sajni Patel will take the audience through the careful approach and thought-provoking process of writing, research, inspiration, and reflection on creating a story that tackles second changes, mental health, racism, and family dynamics.
