LANA REID’s new inspirational talk show DON'T BOX ME IN breaks from convention. Hosted by popular, award-winning author and public speaker Lana Reid, this uniquely inspirational/motivational show covers a variety of “outside the box” topics from Lana's own DISTINCTIVE perspective.

LANA REID converses with her audience and guests in an upbeat way, learning a few things, and having fun becoming better people with better lives – culminating into a core message that inspires ordinary people facing life’s challenges.

Having overcome her own personal tragedy at the age of 32 when she lost her beloved husband of 12 years, and thrust into single motherhood, Lana believes that people facing struggles can not only survive, but they can also thrive.

“Nothing wrong with being just a regular person, as long as you do it in an amazing kind of way,” Lana says, and her weekly show is home to these types of extra-ordinary perspectives: * A felon's struggle to get a job after release * A comic's rise from homelessness to fame * An activist making sweeping changes in her community * Younger men who like older women (cougars) * Save the three legged frog in the Mississippi river (!)

Out From the Shadow of Men
Years ago, Laila El-Sissi , a shy, impressionable and easily influenced 15-year-old, and her more rebellious 16-year-old sister, Rawyia, learned that they were betrothed to men they had never met. They refused to live in the prison constructed by their Egyptian society, hoping for a better life than that of their mothers and aunts. Running from their controlling father, an abusive brother, and arranged marriages to men twice their age, Laila and Rawyia risked their reputation and safety and plotted their escape. “Out from The Shadows of Men,” a memoir, tells the story of two sisters who found the courage to risk their lives and stand up to forces seemingly as large, strong and ancient as the pyramids so they could choose their futures. This is the account of two brave, intelligent girls not content to have their lives ruled by others—not even their father. It is a testament to the power of two courageous sisters, who stood and supported each other in order to create a better life and turn their dream into a reality.
