AM­BER’S ES­SEN­TIAL #METOO READS

The star turns a spot­light on these il­lu­mi­nat­ing works

WHO - - Winter Reads -

AN UNTAMED STATE ROXANE GAY

“[Gay’s] novel fol­lows a woman who’s kid­napped in Haiti and her strug­gle to sur­vive in the face of ex­treme vi­o­lence and sex­ual as­sault. It is a breath­tak­ing, in­spired read that will leave you feel­ing fu­elled for any fight this world throws your way.”

YOUR SI­LENCE WILL NOT PRO­TECT YOU AUDRE LORDE

“These es­says on si­lenc­ing—rang­ing from LGBTQ rights to women’s phys­i­cal bod­ies to the era­sure of black women’s sto­ries—should be manda­tory read­ing for any­one in need of a fresh per­spec­tive. (So, lit­er­ally all of us.)”

TO­DAY I AM A BOOK XTX

“The very short sto­ries in this col­lec­tion pierce with po­tent lan­guage and unique style. xtx’s work not only draws you in with its raw of­fer­ing, it holds you there, tight, never let­ting go. Never fad­ing from your me­mory.”

WOMEN & POWER A MAN­I­FESTO MARY BEARD

“When we talk about #Metoo and sex­ual mis­con­duct, we’re not just talk­ing about sex; we’re talk­ing about power. Beard re­veals the ori­gins of these con­ver­sa­tions, trac­ing the si­lenc­ing of women back to the Ro­man Em­pire and be­yond.”

THE BOOK OF LIGHT LU­CILLE CLIFTON

“Clifton’s po­ems in this book give some of the most as­tound­ing im­agery and emo­tional charge I’ve ever read in a po­etry book. She’s the mas­ter of the sin­gle line, able to con­vey com­plex emo­tions and thoughts in a way that many can­not.”
