From the author of the international sensation The Vagina Monologues comes a new book about “The Secret Lives of Girls Around the World.” I Am an Emotional Creature, told in a series of monologues, is an inspiring call to action for girls everywhere to speak up, follow their dreams, and become the women they were always meant to be.
In this daring, provocative, and insightful book, Ensler captures girls’ voices from around the globe telling stories from the heart of their lives. From a girl in Westchester who no longer wants to live up to the demands of the popular crowd to a girl who miraculously survives being kept as a sex slave in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler’s monologues reveal the struggles of girls everywhere to find their voices amidst the pressures of family, friends, and society.
With teen pressures at an all-time high and bullying cases, violence, rape and suicide constantly in the news, this is an important and empowering book to share with your patrons. But enough from me, please listen to what the author has to say in the video below and visit Eve Ensler’s website for more info.[youtube qgIZJKuMcyU]
