Under Her Skin: How Girls Experience Race in America is an anthology of essays by women that explore through a child's lens the sometimes savage, sometimes innocent, and always complex, ways in which race shapes American lives and families. Including the perspectives of women of color, white women, and those caught in between, Under Her Skin traces themes related to double lives, fear, envy, lineage, and family, broadening our understanding of the often-painful subject of racial difference.

Editor Pooja Makhijani is joined by contributors Sejal Shah, B. Lois Wadas, and Karen Elias, who will read from their own essays in this book showcasing the depth and breadth of women’s experiences. Girlhood is painful in any case, and with the overlay of ethnic and color differences, it’s almost impossible.

Directions: 1 block south of the F train's 1st Avenue stop and just 5 blocks from the JMZ-line's Essex/Delancey Steet stop."
