Page 158 Books is excited to welcome Andrea Lytle Peet to discuss her book, Hope Fights Back: Fifty Marathons and A Life or Death Race Against ALS. The incredible story of a young woman living with ALS, who defies all odds by finishing fifty marathons and, in turn, inspires people to “go on, be brave.”

Andrea Lytle Peet, an urban planner and triathlete, was diagnosed with ALS at the age of thirty-three and she began to write her story with the disease as it unfolded—in real time. Andrea and her husband, David, established Team Drea Foundation which raises funds for ALS research. She is a graduate of Davidson College and Georgia Tech and currently lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband and two cats.
