Christine Caldwell & Lucia Bennett Leighton -- "Oppression and the Body"

Christine Caldwell and Lucia Bennett Leighton will speak about and sign their new book, Oppression and the Body: Roots, Resistance, and Resolutions, on Tuesday, June 12th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
In a culture where bodies of people who are brown, black, female, transgender, disabled, fat, or queer are often shamed, sexualized, ignored, and oppressed, what does it mean to live in a marginalized body? This anthology explores how power, privilege, oppression, and attempted disembodiment play out on the bodies of disparaged individuals and what happens when the body's expression is stereotyped and stunted. Oppression and the Body offers strategies for embodiment and activism and considers what it means to be an embodied ally to anyone experiencing bodily oppression.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased in advance at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
