brushing up on the backlist: HUNGRY FOR MORE

It's always cool to see one of our authors being interviewed years after their books come out, and especially when the book is mentioned. Today I want to call attention to Hungry for More, by Robyn McGee, which was actually the second book I acquired at Seal Press when I started in 2004.

On today, Robyn talks about the misrepresentation, and/or limited representation, of black women in film and television. "Female film roles are prone to stereotype," she said.

McGee lost her sister to gastric bypass surgery, which prompted her to write this book on black women's body image.

Thanks, Robyn, and check out the book.
