About this Event

A juicy, heartbreaking, and cathartic conversation with the author, about her new book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone. Lori shares her very personal and revealing journey to help explain and demystify the therapeutic process. The author teaches us that the truth of who we are is what draws people to us. This event is co-presented with Parnassus Books.
