Join SpeakUp ReachOut for a February Book Chat of New York Times bestseller
Group: How One Therapist and a Circle of Strangers Saved My Life by Christie Tate
Group is “an original debut memoir of a guarded, over-achieving, self-lacerating young lawyer who reluctantly agrees to get psychologically and emotionally naked in a room of six complete strangers—her psychotherapy group—and in turn finds human connection, and herself.”
“Every page of this incredible memoir by Christie Tate had me thinking, ‘I wish I had read this book when I was 25. It would have helped me so much!”’
Reese Witherspoon
Read at your own pace – we will discuss the book as a group on February 25th at 7pm.
Facilitated by Carol Johnson, SpeakUp ReachOut’s Director of Programs and Events, along with special guest, Dr. Casey Wolfington of Eagle Valley Behavioral Health.
