Sara Somers, Author & Blogger
Sara lives in Paris in a beautiful apartment that overlooks the river Seine and the Pont Neuf. She retired and moved to Paris eight years ago. She walks everywhere and sees a lot of everyday Parisian life, goes to movies, volunteers at the American Library in Paris and writes.
Sara is the author of Saving Sara A Memoir of Food Addiction available wherever books are sold. She will read from and discuss her book, which describes her many years suffering from untreated food addiction. She wrote the memoir in hopes that others suffering as she did will identify and know there is hope and there are solutions. She would also like to educate friends, family and professionals working with food addicts that food addition, like alcoholism, is a real disease. The Harvard School of Medicine predicts that by 2030, 40% of Americans, and in some places 60%, will be obese. It will be killing more and more people.
She also writes a blog about Food Addiction.
