Book + Bottle Presents: A Valentine’s Day Conversation and Empathy Workshop for Friends and Lovers with Michael Tennant!

February 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Some say our best relationships are built on stimulating conversation. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Book + Bottle invites lovers and friends to a workshop run by Michael Tennant, creator of the empathy card game Actually Curious! Using his card games, Michael will run us through exercises that push couples and friends to grow while also including moments of levity and laughter. Based on the science of trust-building and emotional intelligence, this workshop will help you get more vulnerable as you build trust – with your best pals or your significant other. Grab a glass of wine and let’s get deep!

Michael Tennant is the Founder, and CEO of Curiosity Lab, a purpose driven venture studio and consultancy that builds products and experiences that teach empathy, creator of the empathy card game, Actually Curious, and author of The Power Empathy, published in October 2023 by Chronicle Books. In his role as CEO, Michael creates and incubates businesses to help values-aligned individuals and organizations use empathy to live happier and healthier lives, and to nurture productive and inclusive environments. In 2022, Curiosity Lab received an investment from Pharrell and the Black Ambition Prize.


*Beverages will be available for purchase at the bar!

* Actually Curious Card Decks available for sale at Book + Bottle. Each of the different Actually Curious decks includes contributions and input from psychologists, journalists, crisis negotiators, game developers, culture creators, and industry experts to teach the tools of empathy through play.
