Charmed, I'm Sure
Funny how these things happen, but I was at Columbia University today attending a conference on religion and the environment
when who should walk into a student's cafe but Lantern author Norris Chumley
, who's not only the author of The Joy of Weight Loss
but a newly minted Ph.D. from Union Theological Seminary and completing filming on a fascinating documentary about the Eastern Orthodox and desert monastic traditions. Norris told me he'd just sold his book on the film, The Sacred Desert
, to HarperOne.
Then, that evening, I attended a book signing at Barnes & Noble Lincoln Center for soon-to-be Lantern author Victoria Moran
's new book, Living the Charmed Life
. Both Victoria (whose book from us is The Love-Powered Diet
, the history of which you can view
here) and Norris lost a whole bunch of weight using techniques from Overeaters' Anonymous
. Published elsewhere though they may be, we're delighted to be part of their continuing success.
