Tomorrow I go under anesthesia for the first time.* Later in the weekend I may have to put my boon companion of 18 years to sleep.** Just putting this here while I make peace with it.

*It’s minor.

All I can tell you about today is that it was very heavy, save for one shining moment when I talked to my boss about a Helen Reddy lyric that I somehow got into a story—in a paragraph that also uses “We’ve come a long way, baby” in an actual non-corny fashion, thank you very much—and I think she had a purple shawl on but I couldn’t look right at her because it was possibly a religious experience.

Dear Ke$ha, you have won me over with your tricks and charms and I must tell you I really like your song. Though I must add I tried brushing with a bottle of Jack and I chipped a tooth on the glass. Where might I remit an invoice?

Black Feminism LIVES!: Revolutionary Young Adult Books/Youth!

Black Feminism LIVES!: Revolutionary Young Adult Books/Youth!:

blackfeminismlives:


This is compiled by my friend and comrade Lynne Walters

Want to donate one of these books to the Indigo After School Program shelf in the Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Library? Email me at brokenbeautifulpress@gmail.com.

Had a super-duper bummer day in the midst of a long stretch of them, so I am justifying this ego-reblog as self care because I am so thrilled to see my book on this list. I’m donating as many copies as I can of course, and encourage anyone who has resources to help these folks to go for it because they obvs have good taste.
