How I Resist is out today!
Well, today is finally the day! It's been - A WHILE; I just checked my email archives and we've been working on this for almost a year and a half, which isn't actually that long in book terms but STILL - and so it feels surreal that our anthology How I Resist: Activism and Hope for a New Generation is officially out in the world today. We have an amazing list of contributors (Jodi Picoult! Rosie O'Donnell! Jesse Tyler Ferguson! Jason Reynolds! Sabaa Tahir! LOTS MORE) and an awesome mix of content including inspirational personal essays, poetry, practical how-tos, and even cartoons and sheet music.
This book was a great outlet for me personally in the aftermath of the 2016 election - it gave me something concrete to do with all my sadness and rage, and now we have a tangible result, a REAL THING we made that I hope will bring other people comfort and hope and help. I love this book and I hope you do too.
