Two Book Events

I'm thrilled to announce a few new book events to support Balancing Pregnancy With Pre-Existing Diabetes: Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby. I would love to meet you if you're a book fan or a blog reader.

First up is at Isis Parenting in Brookline, MA on Wednesday, June 23 at 7 pm. I'll be speaking on a panel about diabetes and pregnancy that includes the directors of the diabetes and pregnancy program at Boston's Joslin Diabetes Center/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Florence Brown and Tamara Takoudes, as well as an exercise and diabetes expert from Joslin, Jacqueline Shahar. Isis is a terrific resource for expecting and new parents, and I'm a giant fan of the Joslin/BIDMC pregnancy program. (Drs. Brown and Takoudes co-wrote my book's forward, reviewed every word of it for medical accuracy, delivered my son, and are all-around awesome. And Ms. Shahar is an excellent exercise resource who also contributed great pearls of wisdom for my book.)

Isis is asking for people to register for this FREE event here either by calling 781-429-1500 or by going online (look for the June 23 event).

I'll also be speaking solo about the book at the Framingham MA Barnes & Noble on Wednesday, July 14 at 7pm. I'll give more details as things get closer to the date, but mark your calendar now!

And stay tuned for some new blog posts early next week--it's been too quiet around here for too long!

I called and you have to be a member at Isis to attend.

Anonymous, this is totally not true! The event, as listed on their website, is open to the public. I urge you to come anyway--I promise you won't be turned away.

If you're willing to call back to pre-register, insist that it is open to the public and NOT limited to their members. You are the second person to tell me this (though I'd called Isis last week and told them that it's not a member only event), and just called them again and reminded them.

PLEASE come!

I did call back and have successfully registered. I didn't need to remind them that it is open to all the second time.

Fantastic, Anonymous. Please introduce yourself tonight!
