Book talk, wine & appetizers

Thursday October 6 @ 6:30pm

The Book: In Body Shots: Hollywood and the Culture of Eating Disorders, Emily Fox-Kales explores how the “body narrative” of Hollywood celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah Winfrey about their battles with bulimia, post-maternal weight gain, and yo-yo dieting create a “new normal” glamorizes the chronic body dissatisfaction and weight obsession that put so many media watchers at risk for eating disorders.
We are so excited to welcome Fox-Kales to give a talk about her new book, which is already generating positive media buzz. –> “Body Shots is an engaging and fascinating exploration of the connection between Hollywood’s dream-factory and our eating disordered culture that is derived from Emily Fox-Kales’ vast experience and expertise in the treatment of eating disorders.” - James Hudson, MD, ScD, McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School
