A book that has been going into readers’ hands from the day it first landed, poet and activist Sonya Renee Taylor’s The Body Is Not an Apology: The Power of Radical Self-Love (Berret-Kohler), is one of those books whose empowering messages are readily evident. This evening, with Seattle Civic Poet and artist Anastacia-Renee, is a night not to be missed.
“The Body Is Not an Apology is a gift, a blessing, a prayer, a reminder, a sacred text. In it, Taylor invites us to live in a world where different bodies are seen, affirmed, celebrated, and just. Taylor invites us to break up with shame, to deepen our literacy, and to liberate our practice of celebrating every body and never apologizing for this body that is mine and takes care of me so well. This book cracked me open in ways that I’m so grateful for. I know it will do the same for you.” —Alicia Garza.
“The Body Is Not an Apology is a radical, merciful, transformational book that will give you deep insights, inspiration, and concrete tools for launching the revolution right inside your own beloved body. Written from deep experience, with a force of catalytic energy and so much love.” —Eve Ensler.
