Raychel Adler reading & discussing 'Life in Asymmetry' - March 8th

Time Tested Books
 is pleased to present 
 Raychel Kubby Adler
 Reading & Discussing
Life in Asymmetry

 Wednesday, March 8th, at 7:00pm

As a young girl, Raychel Kubby Adler dreamed of having boobies. Wearing a polka-dot bikini top stuffed with Kleenex, she would stare in the mirror envisioning two beautiful coconuts. But in the next 36 years, her outlook shifts, and when she looks in the mirror, all she sees sitting on her chest are ticking time bombs.
Life in Asymmetry tells the story of what happened in between. From the "flatlands" of puberty, across the "boobie mountains" of parenthood, and traversing the "landmines" of genetic breast cancer, Adler illuminates what it means to live with genetic cancer and to be a "previvor"- a person who is predisposed to an illness due to their genetic status. In this dazzling memoir, Adler  examines the interplay of genetics, personal choice and chance that shapes each of our lives and asks us to explore the course of actions we might take when offered a unique glimpse into our possible futures.

By telling her story, Adler brightens the horizon for future generations of previvors, including her two daughters--so that they may know the unmarred beauty of life's asymmetry.  Let them imagine coconuts.

Raychel Kubby Adler lives in Davis, California, with her husband, two daughters and their dog Chewbarka. She holds a Master's in Public Health, is a certified Wellness Coach, teaches cycling classes, runs a conflict management/physical education program, and writes a blog on wellness, parenting and breast cancer.

*Raychel will be featured on Capital Public Radio's "Insight" program on Monday, March 6th, discussing the book. Tune in from 9-10am or 7-8pm to listen!

This event is FREE and all are welcome!
