“Eimear McBride is that old-fashioned thing, a genius.”-Anne Enright, The Guardian
“Her prose is a visceral throb…thrilling, and also thrillingly efficient. The language plunges us into the center of experiences that are often raw, unpleasant, frightening, but also vital.”-James Wood, The New Yorker
Alexandra Roxo is a transformational coach, healer, writer, and artist, whose debut book, F*ck Like a Goddess, is aimed at modern women looking to get back in touch with themselves and their sexuality. This book is much more than a kama sutra, it’s a road map that women can use to unleash their power in every aspect of their lives.
As Alexandra says, “We are in need of an uprising of messy, wild women, who have reclaimed their bodies, standing in their sacred sexuality for them. We need women living from their own hearts. We need the balance between the fierce and the mindful; the Warrior Woman and the gentle, compassionate lover.”
We are thrilled to present Alexandra in partnership with The Battery for our Women Lit members at the Fearlessness level and above. Watch you email for more information! This will be an intimate and transformative experience as Alexandra discusses her journey to empowerment and shares her tips for women to live life to the fullest and yes, f*ck like a goddess.
“Monumental . . . Elderhood, like the life station it studies, is dynamic, multifaceted and full of wonder. Aronson‘s writing, too, flexes with vibrant energy as she discusses in lucid, candid detail the ways she has seen the healthcare system neglect the overall well-being of her patients, her colleagues and herself . . . Intimidating as it may seem, elderhood becomes welcoming and generous in Aronson‘s deft care.”
―Shelf Awareness, starred review
“Old age” has been defined as beginning between ages 60 and 70, meaning most people spend more of their lives in elderhood than they do in childhood. Despite the fact that we’re beginning to live longer, more fulfilling lives, many of us dread entering our golden years. But what if we had another way of approaching this rich and rewarding phase of life? Join Women Lit and Professor of Medicine at UCSF, Louise Aronson, for an evening of hope, laughter, and frank discussion on what elderhood really is, and what it has the potential to be.
In a book reminiscent of Oliver Sacks, and as revelatory as Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal, Louise Aronson’s Elderhood uses stories from her own life and experience with patients, as well as history, science, and pop culture, to illustrate a new, realistic and joyful approach to aging. After all, if we spend as much as 40 years in elderhood, shouldn’t that time be treasured?
