Me + Oprah Sitting in a Tree…

People, I’m going to cut to the chase on this one.

That’s me. On the Contributors’ Page in O, The Oprah Magazine. I’m dying of excitement. Now you, too, can die of excitement because you can read it online!

I’ve been a huge Oprah fan since age 12. From 1988 to 2011 1991, I honest-to-God watched every single episode. Even though it aired at 4pm in Montreal, I tuned in while eating dinner. (I had gymnastics practice every night from 6-9pm so couldn’t join in our family meal. What can I say? I wanted to go to the Olympics.) I learned all about how to catch a man and what to do when it turned out he was gay lose weight. Don’t even get me started on the 20th Anniversary DVD extravaganza.

Anyway, I digress.

This month, I wrote a piece about the amazing Rita Charon, who founded the Narrative Medicine Program at Columbia Medical School, and has been the leading force behind the Narrative Medicine movement. (Incidentally, this is the Storytelling/Books issue, so you can find all sorts of juicy recommendations, as well as an interview with Cheryl Strayed.) Read my piece by clicking here.

Let me know what you think!


PS: I had to recommend a book, too, so I told people to read Emma Forrest’s Your Voice in My Head. Do it.

    Amazing, a friend of mine was telling me about this really interesting article in Oprah’s magazine yesterday in Dublin! Hadn’t realized YOU had written it. It’s great! x
