Ms. Magazine: June 2022 Reads for the Rest of Us

Part memoir, part cultural history, these memories of seven aunts holding home and family together tell a crucial, often overlooked story of women of the twentieth century

Ms. Magazine's Karla Strand writes:

This list includes 38 of my most anticipated books releasing this month. I know I am grateful for the work of the writers who gift us their remarkable thoughts, knowledge, ideas and worlds. They help me to forget about reality for a bit… or help me learn how to keep fighting it. 

Featured on the list is Seven Aunts by Staci Lola Drouillard:
