I had the pleasure of meeting local NJ author Heather Spergel at the last meeting of the gluten free support group that meets at the Fine Grind in Little Falls. She had brought along an advanced copy of her new children's book "Free to be . . . Gluten-Free!". It's the story of a young boy who becomes ill, deals with the 'gluten monster' and then recovers. I won't review the book here as I'm a bit too old (it's for kids) and sadly have no children of my own.
The book is due out in June and Heather will be making a couple of local appearances including a Mommy and Me Story time at Whole Foods in West Orange (June 19, 11:30am), a meet and great + story time at Barnes and Nobles in Livingston (June 22, 12pm) and another at the Fine Grind Coffee Bar in Little Falls (June 29, 12pm). [A full list of future and other appearances are on her website here.]
