Feel the love all year, with this handpicked collection of 100-word love stories from the beloved New York Times column “Modern Love.”
It’s hard to imagine the range of feelings that can be conveyed in 100 words or less—or what it feels like to read a love story in miniature. Introducing a brand-new calendar created by the editors of the beloved New York Times column “Modern Love” and based on the incredibly popular “Tiny Love Stories” offshoot of the column, this calendar features a new love story for every day—each one 100 words or less. When the Times calls for submissions, the editors simply say: “Tell us your love story. Just keep it really short.” The results are surprising, delightful, funny, relatable, heartwarming (or heartbreaking), and always poignant. Now 100% recyclable and printed on FSC-certified paper.
