CWC North Calendar of Events


Thursday, May 6, 2021: 7 p.m. — Celiac Mom by Ann Campanella: A Virtual Book Launch and Q&A

What does it mean to go gluten-free?  Is it even possible?  Why would someone do it?

Ann Campanella and her husband were wedded to wheat until their daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease at the age of five.  A noncook, Ann became determined to keep Sydney safe from gluten, a substance that was literally poisoning her young daughter.  In her new memoir, Celiac Mom, Ann reveals the benefits and challenges of upending a wheat-filled life.

Ann will read short selections from her book and answer questions about her family’s transition to a gluten-free lifestyle.  She will share the health benefits they have seen and how Sydney has adapted to life without wheat.

This event is sponsored by Charlotte Writers’ Club North and Main Street Books.  It will be hosted on Zoom by Main Street Books.
