Q&A with Brenda Lewis

We had a blast with Brenda Lewis during her event last month. We were excited when she responded to our request to answer Brendaa few questions after the fact. Check out Brenda’s book, The ABC’s of Dating: A Guide to Love and Dating for the Openhearted.


What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman

Is there anything you’re particularly looking forward to the publication of?

I am looking forward to new books by quite a few authors. I read the NY Times and Goodreads amongst other publications to stay current.

Are there standard titles or writers you like to recommend, either within or outside of your field?

I like to read within my field and a good place to find out titles is the people who submit new works through Gradiva awards. I recommend all books by Martin Bergmann, teacher and psychoanalyst within my field.  I love the classics and also a wide genre of books. I enjoy Ann Patchet, books by writer Lily Brett, The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins to name just a few.

Do you have a personal favorite book of all time? If so, can you share it and tell us why?

At different life stages I have always had “favorites”! A special book is The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins as it incorporated so many interesting themes.

What’s next? Any upcoming book projects in the works that you can tell us about?

I am considering a book about relationships and maintaining positive connections throughout life. It would be similar to The ABCs of Dating:A Guide to Love and Dating for the Openhearted but would include issues about couples, sexuality and keeping relationships vibrant.
