TV-lovers everywhere, rejoice! That ’70s Show and Orange Is the New Black star, mother, and best-selling author Laura Prepon is set to take the #BlogHer virtual stage as our latest #BlogHer20 Parenting speaker.
It’s been a huge year for Laura — she recently wrapped her seventh season on OITNB as Alex Vause and has been writing and promoting her new book, “You and I, As Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood.” The book is a candid, raw and honest expression of what it means to be both a daughter and a mother. Laura tackles incredibly tough subjects, reflecting on her life, including the effects of fame at a young age, her struggle with bulimia, and her relationship with her mother. The much-anticipated memoir is finally out! Grab it wherever you like to buy books.
Although she is best known for her roles as Donna (That ’70s Show) and Alex (OITNB), Laura Prepon wears many hats — she’s a director, a mama, and a die-hard cook – her first book, “The Stash Plan: Your 21-Day Guide to Shed Weight, Feel Great, and Take Charge of Your Health” teaches readers how to stock their pantry with “stash” meals that are budget-friendly, healthy and manageable with an on-the-go lifestyle. As relevant now as ever, the stash plan will help you answer the question – what can I make with all this sh*t?
Recently, Laura spoke out about her and her family’s difficult decision to terminate their second pregnancy due to health complications. Laura’s decision to share her story so openly is an expression of the strength and resilience she embodies. In doing so, she has effectively helped to normalize conversations surrounding women’s reproductive choices, abortions, and mental health. It’s people like Laura who have made the choice to share their hardships and stories of strength that make us all stronger.
We could not be more excited to welcome this multi-faceted mama to the #BlogHer20 Parenting virtual stage. Register for your free ticket today – you don’t want to miss a minute of this badass lady’s time on screen!
