Boston: Me and You on Saturday


This Saturday in Boston, I am going to try to be verbal with a room full of folks at 8:30 AM. It could be dangerous, says my inner night owl.  I’ll be talking about the lessons I learned while traipsing across the United States interviewing young adult cancer survivors for my book Everything Changes.

I’m  keynoting a great young adult cancer conference called I’m Too Young For This. (A hauntingly familiar name, no?) There are still a few slots left for registration at The conference is free and is going to be a blast. Break out sessions will include juicy YA topics like singles and cancer, nutrition, mindfulness, caring for the caregiver.

If you cannot make it to the conference, but are around that evening, Matthew Zachary is arranging an i2y Boston Cancer Happy Hour. I don’t have the 411 at the moment to post the details, but if you are interested, shoot me an email: kairol[at]mac dot com and I’ll get you the info. ASAP.

    K: When I did an interview project, I always thought: It could be very interesting to play excerpts live in front of an audience. Have you ever considered adding that authentic element to a talk or conference? Or would it be a breach of confidentiality?
