Local poet and author, Sandra Beasley (a 2002 graduate of UVA) was highlighted on the UVA Today blog. Her story is incredibly touching and her memoir takes a look at living with food allergies as well as the cultural history of the phenomenon. Sandra will be doing a reading on Sept. 29 at 5:30 p.m. in New Dominion Bookshop on the downtown mall. She recently did an interview on NPR’s Diane Rehm Show.
Check out the book trailer below for a peek into the memoir. Do you have food allergies or know someone with them?
