You can read about Miss America 2008’s activism surrounding Eating Disorders here. And wouldnt you know it, Fall Speaker Kathleen MacDonald will be speaking later that evening! Rock on, Kathleen!
There’s a new book by Laurie Halse Anderson called “Wintergirls”. I havent read this new one, however, I was impressed with her previous book entitled “Speak” about a highschool rape victim. “Wintergirls” is getting a ton of press, and if it’s anything like “Speak”, i think i’ll be picking up a copy!
