Get Lit with All of It: Lori Gottlieb
Get Lit with All Of It
Originally Aired: Wednesday, January 22, 2020
Join Alison Stewart, host of WNYC’s All of It, for the next installment in her monthly book club series with bestselling author Lori Gottlieb for a discussion of her book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.
In the book, therapist Lori Gottlieb learns a lot about humanity, and herself, when a crisis emerges and she decides to get her own therapist. With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb reveals our blind spots, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change. The book is currently being adapted into an ABC series, starring Eva Longoria.
Get to know Gottlieb and ask her your burning questions about the memoir. Plus, Dr. Gail Saltz shares tips on how to find the right therapist for you. With a musical performance by Jill Sobule.
Grab a ticket for yourself and read along with Alison and Team All of It, or buy a table and get your whole book club to come along!
