Modern Love is the New York Times column devoted to real-life love stories, and Daniel Jones is the man who's edited the column since its inception in 2004. Tonight, Jones reads from Love Illuminated, his new book drawing lessons from the roughly 50,000 love stories he's received. Joining Jones will be three Seattle writers with Modern Love columns in their CVs: memoirist Theo Pauline Nestor, essayist Wilson Diehl, and poet/memoirist Nicole Hardy (whose ML column, as well as the book it spawned, started as a piece read at Hugo House).
