In preparation for the upcoming release of her first book and memoir, The Only Pirate at the Party, famous LDS violinist and YouTube creator Lindsey Stirling has shared multiple interviews with the media about what the book means to her.
Back in August, during VidCon 2015, Stirling talked with Chelsea from Hollywire TV about the part of the book that is most important to her. While she described the book as a collection of funny vignettes and lessons learned, Stirling noted telling her story about anorexia was powerful.
“I didn’t realize what it had done to me,” she said about the moment she realized she was sick. Stirling went on to talk about how she thought anorexia was incurable and loves helping people who struggle with it understand there is hope ahead. You can watch the full interview below. This isn’t the first time Stirling has talked about anorexia; she was one of the first people profiled as part of Mormon.org’s “I’m a Mormon” campaign and in the video she discussed in length how anorexia affected her. You can watch it here.
Stirling has been working on the book for the past two and a half years with her sister Brooke; it will be released on January 12, 2016. She has also announced a book tour and you can find all of the dates and locations here. Another fun video posted by Stirling shows her telling her sister some pretty interesting stories.
