My Body, My Words
Editors Amye Archer and Loren Kleinman put together a collection of body-centric essays that is so much greater than the sum of its (beautiful) parts. The anthology My Body, My Words is rich with stories of gender transformation, dressing-room breakdowns, yo-yo diets, judgmental grandmas, and falling in love. I loved Megan Galbraith's sexy tale of a summer camp counselor skinny dip. Plus, 50 percent of the book sale proceeds go to the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.
