In the Flesh: Twenty Writers Explore the Body

In the Flesh is a new collection of essays about parts of the body. It's edited by Victoria writers Kathy Page and Lynne Van Luven. Each essay focuses on one part of the body and the associated writer explores the function, meaning and role that part of the body has played in his or her life. The essays explore 20 different parts of the body including face, hands and breasts. Sheryl sat down with Kathy Page and Lynne Van Luven - both contributors as well - and were joined by one of the writers, Julian Gunn.

The official launch of the book happens in Victoria on Sunday April 29th at 2:30 pm at Fernwood Yoga Den - 1311 Gladstone Ave.
