Celebrate National Women's Friendship Day on September 20 with Dr. Irene Levine's BEST FRIENDS FOREVER

This Sunday is National Women's Friendship Day, an annual celebration sponsored by Kappa Delta Sorority that offers all women the opportunity to remember their special friends.

Dr. Irene Levine, author of Best Friends Forever, a must-read book about female friendships, offers a few tips and a few free books on her Friendship Blog:

1) Call, email, or get together with one or more of your best friends. Show and tell your friend how much you care. Don't wait until Sunday because by then, you may forget. Last night I attended a memorial service for a very dear friend (once my elementary school teacher!) whom I had known for most of my lifetime and I only wished that we had had one more hour to chat.

2) If you are a blogger, write a post about Friendship Day. (I'll be happy to help with a quote.) On this special day write your own or repost one of my posts from (with attribution, of course). Email me ( the URL of your post by Sunday midnight and my three favorites will receive 2 free copies of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend (one for you and one for a best friend).

3) If you aren't a blogger but have a Facebook or LinkedIn page, please use your status box to remind your friends about Women's Friendship Day.

4) If you Twitter, cut and paste this tweet: 9/20 is Women's Friendship Day.

5) Please email AT LEAST 5 of your best friends about Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend. All of us have suffered the pain, at least once, of losing a best friendship that we thought would be forever. After spending two years thinking about female friendships and surveying more than 1500 women from all walks of life, I've learned that falling in and out love with best friends is universal.
