Author Meet and Greet with Michelle B. Slater, PHD!

We are so excited to announce our upcoming author event with Michelle B. Slater, PHD! She will be here on September 17th from 2:00pm - 4:00pm promoting her new book "Starving to Heal in Siberia: My Radical Recovery from Late-Stage Lyme Disease and How It Could Help Others"! 

MICHELLE SLATER is a scholar of comparative literature and president of
the educational nonprofit Mayapple Center for the Arts and Humanities, Inc. in
Connecticut. She holds a PhD in French literature from Johns Hopkins University.

Her long battle with and recovery from late-stage neurological Lyme dis-
ease served as the genesis for this book. Debilitated by the disease to the extent

that she was no longer able to teach at her university or perform simple tasks

like driving and reading, Slater spent several years pursuing every known treat-
ment, from aggressive allopathic methods to holistic remedies. When all failed

to deliver recovery, she discovered Dr. Sergey Filonov’s dry fasting program and
spent two months in Siberia under his care. She recovered completely from

Lyme disease, regaining her memory and returning to researching, writing, hik-
ing, and running. Since 2017, she has not experienced a single symptom.
