Date and time
Saturday, June 07, 2008

Shelley Lewis introduces her latest book, *Five Lessons I Didn't Learn From Breast Cancer (And One Big One I Did)*, which interweaves the author's personal story, interviews with breast cancer survivors, and a sharp-eyed journalist's look at the breast cancer “community.”

Shelley Lewis is the author of two books, contributing editor of two more, and co-founder of the website, Howdini.com. She spent the first 25 years of her career in mainstream media as a producer and executive producer of news programs for NBC, ABC, and CNN. In 2003 she was a co-creator of Air America Radio, and served as vice president of programming for two years. She began a second career as a writer and website owner in 2006, and she's never regretted it for a minute, except when she misses the bloated salary she used to earn as a network executive.
