Heading back to Madison today with this big beautiful poster version of Bodyminds Reimagined from the Duke University Press booth. The press sold out of all their copies of my book at both National Women's Studies Association and American Studies Association conference this weekend. I am so grateful for each and every person who purchased the book, attended any of my FOUR sessions (including an NWSA Author Meets Critic featured session), came to my Radical Futures book party, congratulated me, complimented my work or otherwise showered me with appreciation and love the past few days. I am humbled, touched, honored and blown away by it all. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
