Rock Island Library Hosts "Surviving the Holidays" with Lori Gottlieb

Author Lori Gottlieb, of "Maybe You Should Talk to Someone"

As part of the Illinois Libraries Present (ILP) online program series, the Rock Island Public Library will host best-selling author and psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb on Dec. 6. All ILP programs are free and open to any registered member of the public.

On Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 7pm, the Rock Island Public Library accompanies more than 200 Illinois libraries to host Surviving the Holidays with Lori Gottlieb. Gottlieb, New York Times best-selling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, and co-host of the “Dear Therapists” podcast, offers a thought-provoking conversation about mental health in anticipation of the winter holiday season. 

The nonfiction author blends her clinical experience with the latest research and cultural developments with the goal of helping people live better lives. Gottlieb’s book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone, sold over a million copies and is currently being adapted into a television series. 

In addition to her clinical practice, she is co-host of the popular “Dear Therapists” podcast and writes The Atlantic’s “Dear Therapist” advice column. She has been on the “Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” CNN, and NPR’s “Fresh Air” as a therapy expert and her 2019 TED Talk was one of the most watched of the year.

To sign up for any ILP presentation, visit the Rock Island Library events calendar, or call the Library’s Reference Desk at 309-732-7341.

This online event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present (ILP), a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events. The virtual collaboration brings library patrons access to best-selling authors and programs that would be otherwise unattainable for a single library due to budget or production constraints.

Illinois Libraries Present is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). Illinois Libraries Present is committed to inclusion and accessibility.
