Christie Tate GROUP


We are thrilled to announce we will be hosting Christie Tate in the virtual Volumes sphere to chat about her new book GROUP: How One Therapist and Group of Strangers Saved My Life. Tate will be joined in conversation with novelist Alison Hammer.

“It takes courage to bare your soul in front of a therapist, but when you add six strangers to the mix, it becomes an act of faith. In Group, Christie Tate takes us on a journey that’s heartbreaking and hilarious, surprising and redemptive—and, ultimately, a testament to the power of connection. Perhaps the greatest act of bravery is that Tate shared her story with us, and how lucky we are that she did.” —Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
