Some of the best stories result from responses to a simple question: “How did you meet?” Hear insights from Dr. Teresa Cooney, Professor of Sociology at UC Denver, on the science behind human connection and chemistry, and join your fellow community members as we swap stories of love and friendship just before Valentine’s Day. Community Voices is an Anythink series that explores not what sets us apart, but what brings us together. Come with an ear to listen and a story to share. Appropriate for adults, though all ages are welcome if accompanied by adults. Space is limited; please register here on our website.
