Harriet Brown has written for the New York Times Magazine, O, Health, Glamour, Vogue, and many other publications. She has covered topics from fat acceptance to forgiveness. A frequent contributor to the Tuesday New York Times science section, she writes about issues that affect the lives of women and children. Her book, "Brave Girl Eating: A Family’s Struggle with Anorexia," recounts her family’s efforts to help their oldest daughter recover from anorexia nervosa. Her latest book is called "Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight--and What We Can Do about It."

Brown is the editor of two anthologies (Feed Me! and Mr. Wrong), and several other nonfiction books, including "The Good-Bye Window: A Year in the Life of a Day-Care Center." Her radio essays can be heard on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and “To the Best of Our Knowledge.” She co-chairs Maudsley Parents, a website of resources for families struggling with eating disorders maudsleyparents.org, and is a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders.
