The gluten-free trend isn’t dissipating anytime soon, given the media reaction to Stephen Yafa’s , Grain of Truth: A Real Case For and Against Wheat and Gluten, which dives headfirst into the often contentious world of nutritional fact and myth and went on sale from Avery on May 12.  Fox Health did a great article on fad diets featuring the book, and Salon will be publishing an excerpt next week. Time Magazine will be featuring a review – both online and in print. With over 45 local and national radio interviews booked and events in the author’s hometown in the Bay Area confirmed, as well as in Napa Valley, and Washington, DC – both events featuring tastings and local baker visits – we look forward to Grain of Truth whetting the appetites of many readers across the country.
Avery’s The Map Thief by Michael Blanding has been selected as the 2015 New England Society Book Award winner in the Nonfiction – History & Biography category. He will be honored at the New England Society Book Awards Luncheon on June 3  in Manhattan.

Dr. Kelly McGonigal launched the The Upside of Stress on The Today Show, where she gave Matt Lauer a bit of a stressful situation to deal with, and helped coach him through his physiological responses. The media continued with a 25-city radio tour, great local NPR interviews, such as KQED’s Forum and KERA’s Think!, and tons of wonderful online hits, including the Washington PostThe Daily Burn, The Daily Om, and Big Think. To see Kelly in print, head over to a magazine stand and check out this month’s Redbook, Self, Spirituality & Health, and ELLE magazine, who’s glowing review said that “McGonigal’s new book is a crucial pushback against the pervasive view that stress is a buzz and body-killer best eradicated from our lives.” Still to come throughout the month, keep an eye out for Kelly on The Dr. Oz Show, PBS’sBetween the Lines, People’s Pharmacy radio, in The Wall Street Journal, and much more. Going forward, Avery hopes you feel much more capable of embracing stress, and helps make you more resilient.
