Together with UBC Bookstore, Caitlin Press, and the UBC Creative Writing Alumni Association, the UBC Creative Writing Program is hosting a reading and book signing of the anthology Boobs: Women Explore What It Means to Have Breasts edited by Ruth Daniell.

“The stories represent the diverse experiences that surround breasts: the coming of age stories, the struggles with gender, the trauma, the self-love, the experience of motherhood, the early sexualisation, the struggles of not feeling like enough or feeling like too much–too much of a woman, not enough of a woman, too much cleavage, too little. […] But no matter what your personal experiences with them, Boobs will engage you and make you feel things–in the breast possible way.” –Ljudmila Petrovic, Sad Mag

At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, Boobs is a diverse collection of stories about the burdens, expectations and pleasures of having breasts. From the agony of puberty and angst of adolescence to the anxiety of aging, these stories and poems go beyond the usual images of breasts found in fashion magazines and movie posters, instead offering dynamic and honest portraits of desire, acceptance and the desire for acceptance.

Event details:

When: Wednesday, July 13th, 2pm
Where: Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Room 182
