Sheila Himmel

Prize-winning journalists Sheila Himmel and Fran Smith had very different experiences with their fathers' deaths, one in hospice and one in the hospital. In their book, Changing the Way We Die: Compassionate End of Life Care and the Hospice Movement, they explore the choices we all have.

Sheila is a James Beard Award-winning food writer in the San Francisco Bay Area. She and her daughter, Lisa, confront the power of food and eating in Hungry: A Mother and Daughter Fight Anorexia.
