Nov 28: 1] The Deepest Roots 2] Adopt A Book

In The Deepest Roots: Finding Food and Community on a Pacific Northwest Island, Kathleen Alcalá walks, wades, picks, pokes, digs, cooks, and cans, getting to know her neighbors on a much deeper level. She learns to better understand how we once fed ourselves, acknowledging that there may be a future in which we could need to do so again. Combining memoir, historical records, and a blueprint for sustainability, Kathleen shows us how an island population can mature into responsible food stewards.

Also today, best-selling author and returning guest Katherine Neville joins us to talk about Smithsonian Libraries Adopt-A-Book Program.

As friends began “going back to the land” at the same time that a health issue emerged, Kathleen Alcalá set out to re-examine her relationship with food at the most local level. Remembering her parents, Mexican immigrants who grew up during the Depression, and the memory of planting, growing, and harvesting fresh food with them as a child, she decided to explore the history of the Pacific Northwest island she calls home. The result was The Deepest Roots: Finding Food and Community on a Pacific Northwest Island, written to remind the reader that innovation, adaptation, diversity, and common sense will help us make wise decisions about our future. Kathleen is the author of a collection of essays, The Desert Remembers My Name: On Family and Writing; three novels, including Treasures in Heaven; and a collection of short stories. She lives on Bainbridge Island.

Katherine Neville is a best-selling author and public speaker who had the honor of being the first author chosen to become a member the Advisory Board of the Smithsonian Libraries in Washington, DC. As a great devotee of reading and research herself, Neville has co-created several awards and grants presented by the Smithsonian Libraries.

Jul 25: 1] The Truth About Detoxing 2] Rethinking Narcissism

We live in the presence of over 80,000 chemicals in the U.S. today. Medical literature links our growing exposure to these substances with an increase in chronic disease, from ADD to cancer to infertility to fibromyalgia. Health expert and author Dr. Deanna Minich says you have to detox correctly for it to be effective. Her new book Whole Detox features the detox system she pioneered and debunks the many myths involved in detoxing, such as popular juice fasts, which deprive liver enzymes of necessary proteins.

Dr. Craig Malkin returns to Conversations Live to expound on his book Rethinking Narcissim: The Secret to Recognizing and Coping with Narcissists. Most people think of narcissists as boastful, manipulative, arrogant, and quite easy to spot. Today we’ll take a look at how to detect narcissism in those who are more subtle and hide it much better.

The best medicine is to look at our health as a whole – getting rid of all toxins, including those in body, mind, and spirit. Health expert and author Dr. Deanna Minich says you have to detox correctly for it to be effective. She has pioneered a detox system that focuses on physical toxins, together with the emotional aspects, using different mind-body techniques such as deep belly breathing and engaging in creative activities that free locked-up feelings. In Whole Detox, Dr. Minich also debunks the many myths involved in detoxing, such as popular juice fasts, which deprive liver enzymes of necessary proteins. Dr. Minich is a wellness and lifestyle medicine expert who has mastered the art of integrating ancient healing traditions with modern science. Her unique “whole self” approach to nutrition looks at physiology, psychology, eating, and living within what she calls the “7 Systems of Health.”

“What is narcissism?” is one of the fastest rising searches on Google, and articles on the topic routinely go viral. Yet, the word “narcissist” seems to mean something different every time it’s uttered. People hurl the word as insult at anyone who offends them. In Rethinking Narcissim: The Secret to Recognizing and Coping with Narcissists, Dr. Craig Malkin shows that there’s far more to narcissism than what is seen on the surface. Dr. Malkin deconstructs healthy from unhealthy narcissism and offers clear, step-by-step guidance on how to promote healthy narcissism in our partners, our children, and ourselves. Dr. Malkin is Lecturer in Psychology for Harvard Medical School and licensed psychologist with over two decades of experience in helping couples, individuals, and families. His research on the role of relationships in psychological growth has been published in peer-reviewed journals, and he is a frequent contributor to Huffington Post.
