To celebrate the paperback publication of Susan Shapiro’s debut novel Speed Shrinking, you can “speed date” with actual mental health professionals during the month your regular therapist is away.

SPEED-SHRINKING is exactly what it sounds like, speed dating with mental health professionals.  Feel like having a drink and resolving an issue at the same time?  These events are geared to help you do just that.  From sex therapists to relationship experts, Speed-Shrinking, created by Susan Shapiro, your $15 cover includes one(1) drink ticket and proceeds go to 826LA, leaving you feeling twice as good about yourself…  well worth the price of admission.

Whether you need a new shrink, quick tune-up or some replacement tough love, this line up of nine brilliant gurus will be on hand to meet, greet, and help you get over all your success blocks – and it’s for charity!  Books are available at the event through Book Soup.

In Susan Shapiro’s laugh-out-loud funny fictional debut Speed Shrinking, Manhattan self-help author Julia Goodman thinks she’s got her addictive personality under control. Then her beloved psychoanalyst moves away at the same time her husband takes off to L.A. and her best friend gets married and moves to Ohio. Navigating her insurance network, Julia desperately sees eight shrinks in eight days, speed-dating for Dr. Replacement—or any other new guru—to help shrink back her body and anxiety in time for her close-up.

Susan Shapiro is the author of OVEREXPOSED, FIVE MEN WHO BROKE MY HEART (optioned for a film), LIGHTING UP AND SPEED SHRINKING, both inspired by the shrink who saved her life and career.  She lives in Manhattan with her husband, a TV/film writer, where she’s a journalism professor who teaches popular “instant gratification takes too long” classes.
