There was a flurry of excitement (rather than the expected snow flurries) in Fargo, ND, when the Entertainment Tonight crew arrived to film behind-the-scenes action of the late-November launch of Fargo-based Kototama Publishing’s Beautiful Women of North Dakota, a book and photo exhibit that features 22 “ordinary” women.

As Kototama’s Web site points out, “One of them might be your grandmother volunteering at the nursing home. Another might be a neighbor who joined the armed forces to serve her country, or a friend whose art brings beauty to our world. Each of these women are making a difference in the world in their own way. These women aren’t seeking recognition. We want to change that. Our dream is to see these remarkable women in the spotlight sharing their wisdom and inspiring our generation.” To share everyone’s fun in preparing for the spotlight, check the video at beautifulwomenof.com.


Carol Fenster of Savory Palate in Centennial, CO, is one of the other IBPA members getting attention from major media. She’s scheduled to tape three seven-minute programs on gluten-free cooking that will air on the PBS series Creative Living during the 2010–2011 season. And she’s doing more on the road and on television screens to promote her book Gluten-Free 101IBPA Members – Click here to view the full article (login required).
