After contributing book reviews to the New York Times Book Review for many years, Meadows started writing the Newly Released column for the paper's Arts section in 2010.

In 2013, Meadows wrote "The Boy With a Thorn in His Joints," in the New York Times Magazine about her young son's arthritis and her family's efforts to help him get better using a variety of therapies, including changing his diet. The story became the basis of her new book, The Other Side of Impossible. The book shares the real-life stories of seven families who persisted when faced with difficult health conditions and when traditional medicine alone wasn’t enough.

She has appeared on CBS This Morning, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ESPN, Charlie Rose, and The Brian Lehrer Show. She lives with her husband and twin sons in Brooklyn. Read Less ^
