Happy Ever After: Sandhya Menon, Keith Stuart & Ty Tashiro

Friday 8 March, 2pm-3pm

Al Baraha 1, InterContinental, DFC

And they lived happily ever after… The End. What makes a happy ever after in fiction feel real and not contrived? What does science say about the reality of finding fairy-tale endings in our own lives? Sandhya Menon is the author of YA Rom Coms When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle, With Love, and blames a steady diet of Bollywood movies for her obsession with happily-ever-afters. In Keith Stuart’s Days of Wonder, happily-ever-afters acted out at the local theatre are a lifeline for Tom and his chronically-ill daughter. And Ty Tashiro’s The Science of Happily Ever After explains what truly matters in our real-life quest for enduring love. Join our three speakers in an exploration of these happiness #goals in fiction and reality.
