Eating Matters — Book Launch
Wed, 23 November 2016, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM PST
“It is a figurative and literal F-you to the aspects of our culture that lead women to mental illness. It is a standing up to the status quo of misogyny-drenched culture. It is powerful work MacDonald accomplishes, work that is reminiscent of poet and feminist Adrienne Rich…”
— Rob Budde, Northwood
