If your family hasn't catfished someone to set you up on a date, they aren't meddling enough to meet the bar set by the families in these authors' books. Three authors discuss the lengths to which a determined family can go to meddle in their protagonists' love lives. Is this familial love or a misplaced need for bragging rights, and is this a blessing or a curse?

This programme includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
