Many people have experienced the shock of seeing Days of our Lives during a random sick day or holiday and been struck by the fact that Deirdre Hall still looks like Deirdre Hall. How do soap stars maintain their health during a year-round production cycle? Greg Meng explores this puzzle in his book Days of our Lives Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier Balanced Life. Meng is co-executive producer of the show, so he knows the cast and gets them to open up about their lifestyles. Want to know what Lisa Rinna eats? Dying to learn the exercise secrets of Galen Gering? Days of Our Lives Better Living has these answers and many more. Tonight at 7 p.m. at Barnes & Noble Des Peres (I-270 and Manchester Road; 314-835-9980), Days stars Shawn Christian, Arianne Zucker, Bryan Dattilo, Kate Mansi and James Reynolds sign copies of the book. Admission is free, but line tickets are required and will be available at the store starting at 9 a.m.
