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

Wow! Both speakers were so interesting, and a great moderator. Free, cold white wine, too - thanks CC! Seating is hotel-conference-like - so get there early to snag a decent one. 'Hard to find the actual event room the first time - so allow time for that, too. Buy book ahead, if you can, for a bargain - but they didn't "up" the price at the event, either. He was only able to sign books, not other items, due to time constraints. A really great event and a bargain. Thanks, GS!

This was a very informative evening with the two authors and their excellent interviewer, all three educated in their respective fields. The venue was at maximum capacity, which was expected, as the material was interesting, and the question and...continued

In conversation with Phil Bronstein, Editor at Large, Hearst Newspapers
Legendary Hustler publisher Flynt is seen as a pro-sexuality trailblazer to some folks, but for others he’s the source for sex scandal and smut. Yet for three decades, Flynt has been a symbol of sexual freedom, crusading for First Amendment rights and against political hypocrisy. His landmark Supreme Court case, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, is taught in law schools. Now, Flynt and Columbia historian Eisenbach have teamed up to tackle America’s sexual mores past and present, as well as the evolving role of the press as truth-seeking opinion-shapers. Join us as the fearless Flynt takes a look at freedom of expression, sexual politics and privacy.
