Rhode Islanders Away From Home; Today Show Edition

Those of us who’ve ever tried on a pile of potential new duds in a store only to discover a) our underwear is disintegrating and b) the lighting makes us look like space aliens, will appreciate "You’d Be So Pretty If…," the new book about women’s body image by Rhode Island Monthly contributor Dara Chadwick, published by Da Capo Lifelong Press.

Dara, who gamely describes her encounter with a personal shopper in our latest issue, is scheduled to appear tomorrow on NBC’s Today Show with her thirteen-year-old daughter, Faith, to promote "You’d Be So Pretty If…" and describe how we can teach our daughters how to love their bodies even when we don’t love our own.

So will the svelte Meredith Vieira be doing the interview, we asked? Dara wasn’t sure, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that there’s no breaking news on channel 10 tomorrow during the 8 o’clock hour.
