Q: Why is it so hard to make friends as an adult?

A: It's not.

This free event is a one-hour talk and one hour of getting to know other people who are interested in making new friends in a casual, relaxed environment (no name tags will be issued).

Seven years ago Ryan Kriger arrived in Vermont not knowing a soul, but he had a plan. It worked out better than he could have imagined, and now he wants to share some strategies and advice for making friends and avoiding the social isolation that affects so many people.

Kriger is a local author, lawyer, professor, and comedian. He has written a book called New In Town: How to Find Friends and Community in a New City, which he is currently seeking to publish. All are welcome.
