Think you've been doing all the right things by "cooking light"? In her book The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet, investigative journalist Nina Teicholz reports that everything we thought we knew about dietary fats is wrong. For decades, we've been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fats -- especially saturated fats -- and that those of us not getting healthier or thinner aren't trying hard enough. Turns out that the very foods we've been denying ourselves are in fact the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. And it turns out the "healthy" foods you've been eating aren't so healthy after all. Hear Teicholz discuss how the misinformation about saturated fats took hold in the scientific community as well as our collective imaginations, and how recent findings dispute those beliefs. She'll also address audience questions and, if you stick around afterward, she'll sign your book. Learn More

This was an interesting story of a jewish family fleeing Austria, going to Shanghai, China,because of its' policy of accepting immigrants, staying for 10 years, and finally leaving for Canada on an American troop ship. Because of the age difference between sister and brother, their recollections were different,one from the other, but complementary. The interviewer was excellent in keeping the narrative lively, interesting, and moving along.
