Join us via Zoom for a conversation with Madeleine Trebenski, author of Do I Feel Better Yet?, a collection of stories, questionable advice and essays on all of the things that people say will make you feel better.

If you’ve ever dared to express dissatisfaction with the state of your life, you’ve inevitably received a variety of helpful suggestions: “Have you tried meditation? Exercise? A cult? An exercise cult?” In Do I Feel Better Yet?, Madeleine Trebenski explores more than 45 so-called solutions suggested to her in the name of self-care. In a playful and at times sardonic chronicle of the elusive promises of multistep skin-care routines, gratitude journaling, scented candles, and more, Trebenski perfectly captures what it’s like to live in a time when homemade kombucha and weighted blankets are said to single-handedly solve all our problems. These essays will make you laugh, make you feel less alone, and maybe make you feel better—even if just for a little while.
