Writers LIVE! Michelle Petties, Leaving Large

Please join us for a lecture with Michelle Petties, as she discusses her life, work, and book Leaving Large.

After four decades of gaining and losing 700 plus pounds, Michelle Petties finally discovered the “secret” to ending the battle between her mind, body, and hunger-her Food Stories.  An author, speaker, Food Story Finder, experiential eating expert, and recovering food addict.  Michelle’s first book Leaving Large—The Stories of a Food Addict, chronicles a lifetime of eating for all the wrong reasons. By unlocking her own unique Food Stories, Michelle debunked long held misconceptions and misconnections about the purpose of eating. Armed with these insights, Michelle now teaches others how to find their own food truths.  

Writers LIVE programs are supported in part by a bequest from The Miss Howard Hubbard Adult Programming Fund.
