Hey BUT Girls and Boys!
Hope you're having a great Summer! What a week it's been for gender equality, eh? US Senator Wendy Davis filibusters her way to feminist super-heroine status by fighting for women's health in Texas! The Supreme Court strikes down DOMA and Proposition 8, making marriage a "genderless institution." Hurray! There's a lot to celebrate.
So come on down to Housing Works Bookstore in New York City and party with us on Monday, July 8th for the official Big Feminist BUT release party!
All of the books sold that night will go to support Housing Works' noble efforts in the twin fights against AIDS and homelessness. A whole bunch of The Big Feminist BUT gang will be at the event which will also feature a special guest appearance from one of our all time, favorite feminist super-heroes and Kickstarter backers - Shannon's Dad!
Here's the Facebook Invite if you'd care to share it with your friends or RSVP:
A special prize awaits you, our main peeps and BUT buddies for life, if you come on by. Not only will you get to meet Shannon's Dad, but you will get a FREE poster Joan is making for the event. Just come up and introduce yourself and we'll give you the goods. We can't wait to meet some of you in da flesh!
Now a couple items of business:
1) If you enjoyed The Big Feminist BUT, consider dropping us off some review love over at Amazon:
2) If you haven't received your book yet, please let us know. We are sending out re-shipments as necessary and don't want to miss any of you.
Hope to see some of you at Housing Works in... like, a week! We're also planning more events around the US soon so stay tuned!
All our best,
Joan & Shannon
