September's book selection: The Body Is Not An Apology by Sonya Renee Taylor

Book description:
Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.

The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world–for us all.

Event description:
Each month the Tool Shed book club meets to discuss a book or other piece of writing that sheds light on sexuality today. Book club meetings are hosted by the Tool Shed staff, and we pick different readings based on group interests. Participants are welcome on a drop-in basis; a monthly commitment is not necessary. Please join us!

Upcoming book club selections are available for 20% off the cover price at the Tool Shed. Please help support the Tool Shed by purchasing your book club books with us!
