This Wednesday, February 17th I’ll be on 91.7FM KAXE’s (Grand Rapids/Brainerd/Bemidji) RealGoodWords show with Heidi Holtan: http://www.kaxe.org/bookclub/http://www.realgoodwords.blogspot.com/ I’ll post a link to the recording, too.
I was originally going to write about Michelle Obama’s crusade to tackle childhood obesity (which I think is great, and I think people need to calm down about the supposed “diet” she put her family on…but more on that later) but I feel like addressing something else first. Being kind to yourself. I normally hate [...]
I’m going to be doing a reading and presentation at Augsburg College in Minneapolis for Eating Disorders Awareness Week on Tuesday, February 23rd at 6PM in the Marshall Room of the Christianson Center. I’m going to read a bit from Purge, talk about recovery and do a Q&A and book signing. It should be great! [...]

On 12/10 I did a radio interview with Lisa Davis on It’s Your Health 91.5FM WUML Boston. It went really well and Lisa asked great questions. If you’d like to listen to the broadcast, you can download it here: http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/38277
Dear readers, Please consider helping a grad student in sociology collect data about how people with eating disorders use and view ED memoirs. It does not take much time at all, and it’s easy. I don’t think anyone else has ever done a study on this, and it’s something that needs to be addressed. I’m [...]
The interview I was going to do tonight has been cancelled. Hopefully we will reschedule. I’ll keep you updated.
