On episode 78 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast I spoke with Deeann Graham, author of the book Head On: Stories of Alopecia. She shared some of the most powerful stories from the book, and we also discussed:
- the process of creating a beautiful coffee-table book;
- the differences in print quality between Amazon and local printers;
- what Alopecia is;
- whether men and women have different experiences with hair loss;
- what physicians sometimes get wrong about Alopecia.
Also, if you’d like to find Reuben, the boy from the cover of the book we discussed, find him here: https://www.facebook.com/reubensworld
Plus, on Today in Writing, the 64th birthday of THE TWO TOWERS.
About Deeann Graham:
Ten years ago, Deeann was thrown into the turbulent waters of alopecia, a hair loss condition that affects over 146 million people throughout the world. She began daily journaling and her pages and pages of writing eventually turned into the realization that there must be others who also had stories to tell.
So she set out to gather stories of other men, women and children with alopecia, and to have them tell their stories. The result is the book: Head-On, Stories of Alopecia.
