How We Met

Past Event

One of NZ’s favourite stand-up comedians, Michèle A’Court returns to Nelson with her new book, How We Met: the ways great love begins...

How can the stories couples tell about how they met – the romantic, absurd, serendipitous, convoluted, scandalous, breath-taking moments of connection – help weave their lives together?

Couch Stories co-host Ro Cambridge joins A’Court to explore how storytelling supports intimacy.

Originally trained as a journalist, Michèle A’Court has been part of New Zealand’s entertainment industry since she first appeared on television in 1987 as a children’s TV presenter. She has been writing a weekly column on social issues for the website since 2008 which also appears in print in “Your Weekend”. As a freelance writer, her work has appeared in Metro, Next, the Listener, the Sunday Star Times, In-Business, Good, Bride & Groom and Pet Magazine. She is a contributor to Her first book, Stuff I Forgot to Tell My Daughter, was published in 2015 and was a bestseller. Her second book, How We Met: The ways great love begins, published in April 2018, was conceived when A'Court had a hunch about why people love telling—and hearing about—these often absurd, convoluted, scandalous, romantic moments of connection.
