Lori Gottlieb

Monday, November 4, 7:30 p.m.

In conversation with author Sarah Hepola

Psychotherapist, advice columnist, and New York Times bestselling author Lori Gottlieb’s new book Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is a thought-provoking look behind the scenes of her life as a therapist—where her patients are looking for answers, and so is she. Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, offering a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them. Lori Gottlieb appears as a frequent expert on mental health in media such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, CNN, and NPR. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is in development for a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC.
