EVENT AT ONCE UPON A TIME
THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 5 at ONCE UPON A TIME BOOKSTORE
SARA SNOW signs her new book 6-8 PM
If you watch Discovery Health, you have probably seen an episode or two of Living Fresh or Get Fresh With Sara Snow. Recipes, tips on organic and sustainable living products, how to have healthier kids, and other aspects of green living are what you get along with Sara's upbeat personality.
Now Sara Snow has published her first book: Sara Snow's Fresh Living, Bantam Books, 2009, 251 pp. It is in part a memoir of how she came to be the green living expert, from her childhood in an organic based family, through her dreams to be an actress and her first TV work to the development of her own shows. She then goes on to take the reader through the home, room by room with practical steps anyone can take to create a healthier, more environmentally conscious lifestyle.
What I like about Sara's approach is that she advises small, incremental steps rather than a complete makeover. I find that more realistic. In addition, her research is thorough on products, how to tell if the food you are buying is really organic, practical ways to recycle whether it is in the kitchen or the home office, etc. She even has a section on non-toxic sex in The Bedroom chapter!
Full disclosure: Sara Snow is my niece. I got Maureen, the owner of Once Upon A Time to stock Sara's book. Then Maureen got so excited she wanted to get her to come and sign books and it is happening, this Friday, June 5 at 6:00 PM! This will be her only Los Angeles appearance. So I hope some of you can make it to the store to meet Sara and get your signed copy. Sara is a beautiful woman inside and out and a wonderful speaker.
You can also send an email to reserve a signed copy if you can't make it on Friday.
