It’s the body part that gets the most media attention. But, why don’t we talk about them – like, really talk about “boobs”? Five percent of women in the U.S. have had breast implants. New research indicates that more than 2/3 of women – in 40 countries around the world – are dissatisfied with their breasts. Maybe it’s time to understand what’s going on? Leslie Lehr’s book, part autobiography and part historical and factual account of our cultural obsession with breasts, takes on our reticence to talk about this most popular, concerning, and possibly least understood body part. Lehr will read from “A Boob’s Life” and take questions from the audience. Come prepared to ask her all of your breast questions!
