A Cup of Jo Book Club! Who’s In?

Maya Angelou reading

Many readers over the years have asked for a Cup of Jo book club, and now seems like the perfect time! Would you like to join? Our first book is…

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb.

maybe you should talk to someone by lori gottlieb

In her funny, gripping memoir, Gottlieb reveals what it’s really like to be a therapist. She talks to her patients — including a brash Hollywood producer and a young newlywed with cancer — and shares the fascinating techniques she uses. Meanwhile, out of her office, she’s going through a bad breakup and seeking help from a therapist herself. The book is thought-provoking, hilarious and completely absorbing.

Have you read it? Or would you like to? We’ll chat about it on Cup of Jo on Tuesday, April 14th (four weeks from now). Please comment below if you’re on board! We’d love to have you. xoxo
