Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl

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?
