Book Club Saturday, January 23, noon
My Life, My Body is a collection of essays by poet and novelist Marge Piercy. In the title essay, she vividly recounts the perils (personal and public) of a woman's life before Roe v Wade.

An early anti-war activist in the 1960s, Piercy expanded her vision to feminism, then literature, becoming a best-selling novelist without abandoning the radical politics that set her on her path. Join us to discuss the title essay of this volume; get your copy for $12 at Revolution Books.
