"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."

The Hidden Forces Behind The Obesity Epidemic – And How We Can End It


Deborah Cohen, M.D.


deborah cohen

Since 1980, Americans, on average, have been consuming 571 extra calories a day....and it shows. More than 150 million of us, nearly half the population, are either overweight or obese. Worldwide, an estimated 1.5 billion people are fat. So, who or what is to blame? Rand Research scientist and Epidemiologist Deborah Cohen says our inherent limited amount of self-control and the unconscious way our brains are hard-wired is only part of the equation. Cheap, processed foods loaded with fat, sugar and salt are everywhere. Portions are huge. Food marketing is non-stop. Filled with the latest research, this book offers constructive personal and policy recommendations to defeat the obesity epidemic once and for all.

A Novel


Christina Baker Kline

In 1853, an estimated 30,000 children were living on the streets of New York City. Thousands more were abandoned, neglected or orphaned in other East Coast cities. Over the next 75 years, a controversial social experiment was implemented to transport an estimated 200,000 children on "Orphan Trains" to farming communities in the Midwest. The pretext was adoption and many children were. But many more were just what farmers needed – free labor. This is the story of one of those orphans -- Irish immigrant Virginia Daly. Her odyssey takes her from a New York tenement to Depression-era Minnesota to modern-day Maine where, as a 91-year old wealthy widow, she forms an unlikely friendship with a teenaged rebel who's been in and out of a dozen foster homes. They discover they have a lot in common, including resilient, loving hearts.
