Maybe You Should Talk To Someone: A Conversation with Lori Gottlieb and Julia Sweeney

Apr 30, 2020 | 11:00am – 12:00pm CT

In her revealing runaway New York Times Bestselling book, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TALK TO SOMEONE, Lori Gottlieb takes us on an eye-opening, behind-the-scenes tour of the human condition, sharing stories of the patients she sees as a therapist--along with her own as a "card-carrying member of the human race." In conversation with actress Julia Sweeney, she'll be talking about what it's like being on the emotional front lines of the current crisis, the role of laughter and joy especially during challenging times, and the life-changing benefits of sharing our stories--the real ones--with each other. Gottlieb's book is being adapted as a TV series by the creators of "The Americans" and her recent TED Talk examines how we're often unreliable narrators of our own lives. In addition to her clinical practice, she writes The Atlantic’s weekly “Dear Therapist” advice column, and her new podcast, produced by Katie Couric, will launch this spring.
