The controversy over chronic Lyme disease and the way social media has so greatly influenced the trajectory of patient advocacy are issues I explore in detail in In the Kingdom of the Sick, so I am thrilled that Dorothy Leland posted a review of the book over at LymeDisease.org today. Please click on over and check it out, especially if you or someone you know has been impacted by Lyme disease.
In other book news, I have some exciting announcements:
I will be appearing on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. I am a huge, huge fan of this show and am so excited for this opportunity. It looks like my segment will air Tuesday, April 16th, but I will post specific details on how to listen and confirmation of this as the date approaches.
C-SPAN BooK TV will be taping my reading event at Brookline Booksmith on Wed, April 17th, at 7pm. If you’re local, Brookline Booksmith is one of the best independent bookstores in the Boston area and a great venue, and I would love to see you there! (Be advised events take place on the lower level of the store.) Please also pass along this event information to anyone you know in the Boston area who might be interested.
And since we’re talking dates, a reminder that I am also doing an author event at Northeastern University at noon on April 11, if a daytime event is more convenient for you.
Thanks so much!
