LEWISTON — All are invited to join the Living Gluten-Free Support Group at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 20, for a discussion with Elizabeth Atkinson, author of “GLEE! An Easy Guide to Gluten-Free Independence.”
Atkinson’s talk will focus on bringing an upbeat, healthy approach to celiac disease. It will be geared toward young adults who live on the go, socialize often, travel and need to maintain spontaneity in their lives.
Inspired by her daughter’s experience as a young person with celiac, Atkinson wrote “GLEE!” after concluding that there were no easy survival guides available to the newly diagnosed and young adults starting out on their own.
The talk will be held at the St. Mary’s Nutrition Center of Maine at 208 Bates St. A donation of $5 each person will be requested at the door. For more information, call 513-3948. Gluten-free refreshments will be served.
