Happy Monday! I am excited to announce Book Giveaway #3. With this book giveaway, we will celebrate some of the great books published by Seal Press (my press). There are three books waiting to land in somebody’s hands: The Anti 9 to 5 Guide by Michelle Goodman, Body Outlaws, edited by Ophira Edut, and Waking Up American, edited by Angela Jane Fountas. Waking Up American happens to have the essay in it that inspired Hijas Americanas (and introduced me to Seal Press). These are great books, and I am excited to share them with you. So here’s how this book contest will work. One of my favorite questions to ask the women that I interviewed was “What does beautiful mean to you?” To hear these women define beauty and then realize that they fit their own definition of beauty was a glorious thing. So, that’s my question for you. What does beautiful mean to you? How do you define beauty? Post your view of beauty here sometime between now and 8 pm EST on Friday, May 25, and I’ll put your name in a drawing for the books. Contest winners will be announced over the weekend. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on beauty.
