July Book Club Pick: Shrill by Lindy West

This month, we will be reading Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West. I’ve been following her writing for years and so I know I’m going to like this book just as much as everything else. (If I had her talent for words, I could think of something better to say than “this sounds awesome!”)

Just to get you started, here is the most recent segment she had on This American Life, reading an excerpt about what it’s like to “come out” as fat.

Here are some other related links:

Our live meeting is in Boston on Saturday, July 30th and I’ll put up a post on here the following day (ish).

Mary Brock is a scientist who works on drugs you've hopefully never heard of. She enjoys cooking to Blue Grass music, messing with her cats, and hosting the Boston Skeptics' Book Club. She was born in the South but loves living in New England (despite the lack of chocolate chip pizza). Mary does not use Twitter and don't even try to follow her, because she is always looking over her shoulder.
