    In her new book, No Walls and the Recurring Dream, singer-songwriter and social activist Ani DiFranco combines personal expression, the power of music, feminism, political activism, storytelling, philanthropy, and entrepreneurship to bring readers this honest, inspiring memoir. In these frank, passionate, and often funny pages is one woman's eventful and radical coming-of-age story defined by her fierce independence—from being an emancipated minor sleeping in a bus station, to releasing her first album at the age of 18, to consciously rejecting the mainstream recording industry and creating her own label. DiFranco is living proof that you can overcome all personal and societal obstacles to be who you are and follow your dream

    Based on his provocative New York Times op-ed piece on toxic masculinity, Sexton’s book combines memoir and analysis for an unsparing look at the consequences to both individuals and society of America’s deep-seated patriarchal culture. Sexton, author of The People Are Going to Rise like the Waters Upon Your Shore, uses his own working-class upbringing as a lens for viewing the larger history of the roles boys have been expected to fill. The decline of industry, the rise of feminism, and other socio-economic changes have made such roles outdated—as well as dangerous. While the #MeToo movement reflects traditional masculinity’s toxic threat to women, Sexton’s accounts of depression, shortened lives, and suicide show the steep toll it takes on men on as well.
