Thanksgiving weekend is all about the food. At least thatâ€™s what one of our guests says. And, many of us donâ€™t follow our deepest desires when we are confronted by groaning tables and mounds of sugary desserts.
We talk to Kara and Bob, two participants in Overeaters Anonymous
groups, about how they approach the holiday season. Both have tips and tidbits to offer from the feast of wisdom that is a 12 step program.
Coming Right Up:
Nadina LaSpina, prominent disability rights activist, educator, and author of the memoir, Such a Pretty a Girl: A Story of Struggle, Empowerment and Disability Pride will be visiting the San Francisco / East Bay Area from New York City next week. You may have heard her recent interview on our program.
Nadina will be featured at the Commonwealth Club, 110 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, on Wednesday, December 4th at 6 PM. There, she will read from her memoir, engage in discussions with her audience and answer questions.
