A reading from Girldrive: Criss-Crossing America, Redefining Feminism


A reading...from a book (wink)!

Mmmmhmm, from Girldrive: Criss-Crossing America, Redefining Feminism.


4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22


Left Bank Books, 299 N Euclid Ave., St. Louis

What the hell is Girldrive?

I’m so glad you asked!

Here’s a brief what-what about Girldrive...
What do young women care about? Have they heard of feminism, and do they relate to it? These are just two of the questions journalist Nona Willis Aronowitz and photographer Emma Bee Bernstein set out to answer in Girldrive. In October 2007, Aronowitz and Bernstein took a cross-country road trip to meet with the 127 women profiled in this book. Girldrive is a regional chronicle of the struggles, concerns, successes and insights of young women who are grappling--just as hard as their mothers and grandmothers did--to find, define, and fight for gender equity.

Head on over, buy a copy of the book and get your listen on this Sunday!
