My friend Karen Walrond just published a book, and it’s a gorgeous piece of work. I put it at the top of my wish list for Christmas but I couldn’t wait that long to read it, so I ordered it early and have been enjoying the fruits of her labor every night before I go to sleep.
Karen is a master storyteller and phenomenal photographer who put into words and pictures the stories of beautiful people who at one time or another felt “different”. I can’t overemphasize the importance of her work, and plan to sit down with Precocious to read snippets of The Beauty of Different over the next few months.
We’re at a precarious point on an adolescent cliff and I wish I’d had something like Karen’s book to guide me through the choppy waters of feeling anything but beautiful while I was growing up.
It’s really fun to see the faces of other people I love from the blogging world, like The Bloggess, oh yes.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Karen really has a way with words and her photography is out of this world.
Run, don’t walk, to your nearest bookstore to order a copy, you won’t regret it for a minute.
