On Life, Love and Hair Removal

Eve and Faye’s correspondence began with a simple letter about a bad job interview or bad hair day, seeking comfort from hundreds of miles away. As their adult lives unfolded, gender roles, career choices, and family relationships became fair game, subject to both scrutiny and hilarity as the Ledermans lovingly ridicule everyone in their path. In one letter, Faye laments, “Every time I apply mascara before an interview my eyelashes get all clumped together. I’m afraid if the interviewer catches my profile he’ll think I’m applying for the position of prostitute.” In another, Eve ponders their father’s ineptness. “If Mom left for the weekend, she’d return home to find Dad emaciated on the floor, tin cans strewn around with bite marks.” Ultimately, the sisters reassure each other that they are not alone in their search for the ultimate man (“a big, buff, macho, kind, sensitive, feminist”), the ideal job, or the perfect hair removal method. The Ledermans emerge as feisty, independent women who confront their femininity but aren’t confined by it. Instead, they are able to laugh long and hard at themselves, enticing and empowering readers to do the same.

So Much I Want to Tell You

Letters to My Little Sister

From Internet sensation Anna Akana comes a candid and poignant collection of essays about love, loss, and chasing adulthood. In 2007, Anna Akana lost her teen sister, Kristina, to suicide. In the months that followed, she realized that the one thing helping her process her grief and begin to heal was comedy. So she began making YouTube videos as a form of creative expression and as a way to connect with others. Ten years later, Anna has more than a million subscribers who watch her smart, honest vlogs on her YouTube channel. Her most popular videos, including “How to Put On Your Face” and “Why Girls Should Ask Guys Out,” are comical and provocative, but they all share a deeper message: Your worth is determined by you and you alone. You must learn to love yourself. In So Much I Want to Tell You, Anna opens up about her own struggles with poor self-esteem and reveals both the highs and lows of coming-of-age. She offers fresh, funny, hard-won advice for young women on everything from self-care to money to sex, and she is refreshingly straightforward about the realities of dating, female friendship, and the hustle required to make your dreams come true. This is Anna’s story, but, as she says, it belongs just as much to Kristina and to every other girl who must learn that growing up can be hard to do. Witty and real, Anna breaks things down in a way only a big sister can. Advance praise for So Much I Want to Tell You “This book is filled with the kind of honesty, vulnerability, and determination that makes Anna such a captivating person. One warning: You’ll want to hug her a lot while reading this.”—Natalie Tran, actress and comedian “As a woman working in entertainment, Anna Akana is accustomed to feeling vulnerable. Which means that she’s used to being brave. This book is a tribute to the duality of bravery and fear as told through Anna’s experiences to date.”—Hannah Hart, New York Times bestselling author of Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded “Frank advice on how to live a productive, happy life . . . written in tribute to a ‘fearless, talented, and bold’ sister.”—Kirkus Reviews

As unresolved issues carried from one generation to the next, author Suzanne L. Holko tried to make sense of her family's situation. She began rereading the letters her father, Walter, had written to her while she was attending college forty years earlier. She also began searching for her father's ancestors, connecting her with newfound relatives. In Letters from My Father, Holko tells how the intertwining of these events led to a story of understanding, acceptance, forgiveness, and unconditional love. She shares how comprehending the details of her father's life and what unfolded within her search gave light to the generational wounds unintentionally handed down through her father's ancestors. She also reveals how she gained further awareness to the challenges faced within her own life and the obvious parallels within both her father's life-and the grandfather she never knew. Letters from My Father describes Holko's spiritual journey, the healing that occurred, and the blessings that were gained. She received a renewed understanding of "all in God's timing" and the joy found within acceptance and unconditional love.
