Rank #2: SHRILL: Lindy West and Carol Sanger on Reproductive Rights

Podcast cover
Read more

Last month, Lindy West joined Papercuts for an event for the paperback release of SHRILL, her book of essays about the making of a funny feminist, coming of age in a culture that’s hostile to women, especially fat women.

It was wonderful to have Lindy join us with 450 fans at the First Church JP in April. But before her event, Lindy discussed reproductive rights and her project Shout Your Abortion with Carol Sanger, author of ABOUT ABORTION.

Carol Sanger is the Barbara Aronstein Black Professor of Law at Columbia Law School, and her book Abort Abortion takes readers on an insightful, original, and eye-opening guided tour of the practices, culture, and legislation behind terminating pregnancy in twenty-first century America.

Lindy West is a pop culture critics and comedian and a weekly columnist at the guardian. SHRILL is a new York times bestseller and was named a Best Book of the Year by NPR, Esquire, the LA Times, and Newsweek. 

Copies of SHRILL and ABOUT ABORTION are for sale in-store at Papercuts J.P. at 5 Green Street in Boston, or online at papercutsjp.com. Thanks for supporting your local independent bookstore.
