Start your Sunday off right with the inspiring author of The Book of Help, Megan Griswold.

“In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed All-Star. She has spent her life examining her existence in patient, courageous, and microscopic detail, and now she has written about her search with tender and comic honesty. What a delightful journey!”

–Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love

The Book of Help begins with the shocking arrest of Griswold's husband, and documents one woman’s grit and willingness to try just about any remedy available to mankind—all for the sake of seeking spiritual happiness throughout the course of an incredible 15-year journey, spanning six continents and 200 therapies.

Megan Griswold went to Barnard College, received an MA from Yale, and went on to earn a licentiate degree from the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture. She has trained and received certifications as a doula, shiatsu practitioner, yoga instructor, personal trainer, and in wilderness medicine, among others. She has worked as a mountain instructor, a Classical Five Element acupuncturist, a freelance reporter, an NPR All Things Considered commentator and an off-the grid interior designer. She resides (mostly) in a yurt in Kelly, Wyoming.
