A Return to In-Person Events
Harvard Book Store is excited to be back to in-person programming. To ensure the safety and comfort of everyone in attendance, the following Covid-19 safety protocols will be in place at all of our Brattle Theatre events until further notice:
- Face coverings are required of all staff and attendees when inside the venue. Masks must snugly cover nose and mouth. At venues where refreshments are served, attendees may briefly unmask when actively eating or drinking.
- To limit contact, books will be pre-signed by the author and can be purchased on-site at the event, while supplies last.
Tickets to this event are sold out.
Tickets for this event include admission for one and one paperback copy of Love, Theoretically.
Signing and Photo Guidelines
Attendees who purchased book-included tickets will receive a pre-signed paperback copy of Love, Theoretically by Ali Hazelwood at check-in. Due to time constraints, there will be no personalization of signed books. Ali will take photos with attendees in lieu of a public signing. Attendees must provide their own camera or phone for the photo line. There will be a Harvard Book Store staff member in the line to assist with photos. Please note, this is a photo line only. All attendees must be out of the theater by 7:30pm.
About Love, Theoretically
The many lives of theoretical physicist Elsie Hannaway have finally caught up with her. By day, she’s an adjunct professor, toiling away at grading labs and teaching thermodynamics in the hopes of landing tenure. By other day, Elsie makes up for her non-existent paycheck by offering her services as a fake girlfriend, tapping into her expertly honed people-pleasing skills to embody whichever version of herself the client needs.
Honestly, it’s a pretty sweet gig—until her carefully constructed Elsie-verse comes crashing down. Because Jack Smith, the annoyingly attractive and arrogant older brother of her favorite client, turns out to be the cold-hearted experimental physicist who ruined her mentor’s career and undermined the reputation of theorists everywhere. And he’s the same Jack Smith who rules over the physics department at MIT, standing right between Elsie and her dream job.
Elsie is prepared for an all-out war of scholarly sabotage but…those long, penetrating looks? Not having to be anything other than her true self when she’s with him? Will falling into an experimentalist’s orbit finally tempt her to put her most guarded theories on love into practice?
Praise for Love, Theoretically
“It would be so easy to hate Ali—who is brilliant and funny and the most delightful writer . . . but it’s far more productive to create a shrine I can worship at, praying for her to finish another book quickly. LOVED. IT.” —#1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult
"Whenever I want a sexy, witty, delicious romance, told in a fresh and intelligent voice, I read Ali Hazelwood. Prepare to get addicted. Each book is pure joy." —Simone St. James, New York Times bestselling author
"The reigning queen of STEMinist rom-coms returns with a tale set in the cutthroat world of eliteacademia full of delightful humor, realistic emotions, and the messy search for self-acceptance." —Booklist, starred review
Walking from the Harvard Square T station: 10 minutes
As you exit the station, cross Mass. Ave. and proceed along Brattle St. Follow Brattle St. as it curves to the right in Brattle Square (follow the sidewalk on the right side of the street). The Brattle will be on the left-hand side of the street. The building is shared with Algiers Cafe and Alden & Harlow Restaurant, and the theatre entrance is on the left side of the building—look for the sidewalk poster case and marquee.
