ANDREA WILSON WOODS, an award winning and bestselling author, former teacher/professor, and current patient advocate, will join us to discuss when she became the "parent" of her 8-year-old sister, and then led her through her final days after her sister was diagnosed with terminal stage IV liver cancer at age 15. We will also discuss her book on the subject, "Better Off Bald: A Life in 147 Days".

Ever hear that William Shakespeare did NOT write the poems, plays, and sonnets attributed to him? Why would people doubt this? For many years most people have heard that "Humans only use 10% of their brains," and most of us believed it - until it was debunked in the early 2000s. We just went along with what everyone else thought. The same thing is true with Shakespeare.
In fact, the idea of a young man from Stratford upon Avon who wrote the greatest poems, plays and sonnets in the English language has not been debunked -- until now.
Shakey's Madness: Does a Mental Disorder Reveal the "Real" William Shakespeare explains a brand NEW theory. In it, readers will explore the idea of a different man. A genius author who had bipolar II affective disorder - whose symptoms included paranoia, and for this reason, the "real" author would NOT wish to be connected to the authorship at all -- but then later would change his mind and include clues and symbols to his identity. Why? It was the nature of his mental disorder - not his character.
Sigmund Freud was also a disbeliever. He did not think the man from Stratford was the genius author. Freud spoke about an Oedipal complex that Freud believed was at the heart of the "real" author and was prominently displayed in Hamlet."
