MyFavoriteAuthor is kicking off Body Image Week today! I am really honored that they asked me to be a part of it along with Kristi of The Story Siren, Liviania of In Bed With Books and authors Deborah Lytton, Sarah Darer Littman, Sara Zarr, Megan Frazer, Laurie Halse Anderson, Sydney Salter, and Erin Dionne!
So what's it all about? The issue of body image and loving the skin that you're in is something that affects everyone in different ways and in different degrees. And there are a lot of books recently or soon-to-be released that address various aspects of the issue. SpeedReader of MyFavoriteAuthor has organized this theme week that will include book reviews, author interviews/guest posts/videos, a couple of challenges and a great book giveaway at the end. So check them out today to see the full schedule of the week's events and where the various posts will be showing up around the blogosphere. (Quick overview is posted in my sidebar for easy reference). My guest post about the issue will be up at In Bed With Books on Saturday, so be sure to check that out.
And don't forget to accept the Body Image Challenge! Everyone who accepts the challenge and reports back at the end of the week will be entered in the giveaway to win:
WINTERGIRLS (signed) by Laurie Halse Anderson
MY BIG NOSE AND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS by Sydney Salter
THE SECRETS OF TRUTH AND BEAUTY by Megan Frazer
MODELS DON'T EAT CHOCOLATE COOKIES by Erin Dionne
I think it's going to be a great week and I look forward to the discussion I hope it will generate. Stay tuned....
