Friends and Dating: Ottawa International Book Expo hosts singles event July
In the post-pandemic world, loneliness has become a prevalent issue affecting individuals across different demographics. According to research by Cigna, over 61% of adults in the US reported feeling lonely or isolated during the pandemic. This epidemic of loneliness is not only affecting mental health but also physical health, as suggested by a study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine.
To combat loneliness and promote social connection, events like the Ottawa International Book Expo 2023 can be a great solution. The event scheduled for July 16 provides an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, learn about self-publishing, and potentially find new friends or a romantic partner.
In the pandemic era, individuals have developed a habit of being lonely due to social distancing and isolation protocols, which has taken a toll on their mental health. However, attending social events and meetups has become one of the top dating trends as it allows you to expand your social circle and potentially find love.
The Ottawa International Book Expo 2023 provides an excellent opportunity for singles to do just that. The event attracts people from all walks of life, all sharing a common interest in books and writing. You never know who you might meet or what kind of connection you might make. Also, if you're not interested in finding a romantic partner, that's okay too. The event would equally cater to those who are just looking to network and connect with other professionals in the industry.
In addition to the workshops and networking opportunities, the event also features a book fair with a variety of self-published works available for purchase. Attendees can browse through the selection and discover new authors and books to add to their reading list.
Overall, this year’s edition of the Ottawa Book Expo is a must-attend event for anyone interested in self-publishing, writing, and books.
