Meghan Laslocky

When: Fri., Feb. 1, 7 p.m. 2013

Journalist Meghan Laslocky has the unhappy distinction of being dumped too many times, and in a variety of situations: via email and IM, on her birthday, and after she moved cross-country for the unfeeling ditcher. Her antidote to lovesickness, or being sick of love, is The Little Book of Heartbreak: Love Gone Wrong Through the Ages. Exploring off-beat stories about love thorough history, film, music, and art, Laslocky writes of Greek love spells gone wrong, the perfect breakup mix CD, and everything and anything having to do with the pain of a failed relationship, for all of us to laugh at and take heart in. On Friday, Feb. 1, at Books Inc. (1344 Park St., Alameda). 7 p.m., free. 510-222-2226 or
