Check It Out

Last month was Women’s History Month! It gave us a chance to celebrate the lives and legacies of so many women who made our planet a better place to live, or to just think about the universal idea of womanhood.

In the Library’s Stacks section, I found a great book that definitely put me in that spirit. Her: Meditations on Being Female is an inspiring collection of engaging, fun, and thought-provoking photographs of women. This is how the author, Marjorie Salvaterra, a very talented Los Angeles photographer, described her book: “Surreal and non-specific… Her is my story. And her story. It’s about the many roles we play as women – as wives, mothers, daughters, individuals, friends… and trying to balance all those roles – somehow while still looking unflappable. Or so we think.”

The book has excellent reviews on Amazon and other sites for book lovers. It is available for four-week check out with your SWC photo ID card.
