French Women Don’t Get Fat

Last night I attended une petite soiree hosted by Wellesley Free Library, Wellesley Booksmith and the
Culinary Guild of New England featuring best selling author Mireille Guiliano for a reading, discussion and book-signing of her latest book, The French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook. This was a pre-official launch affair as the official one is next week in New York, of course.
She is charming, grounded, witty and very attractive. Her books are much the same and emphasize very doable lifestyle changes to help shed pounds and feel more comfortable in one’s own skin, or as she would say “bien dans sa peau”.  If you are looking for a nice read, I encourage you to try any of her 3, soon to be 4 books and as she would suggest, don’t drive, walk to the bookstore… and take the stairs, too.
