She is a Beast is an illustrated collection of feminist fairy tales. Some are re-imaginings of the classic tales we know, such as Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella, while others are completely original. This collection is about women reclaiming their stories and finding agency by embracing their beastly natures and adopting monstrous appetites deemed inappropriate by society. In their wildness they find freedom. She is a Beast will be released by APEP Publications on Saturday, May 2nd at A Novel Idea on Passyunk.
Pre-orders are officially open. For those of you local to Philly, please order from A Novel Idea. Books will be available to pick up starting the 2nd at the bookstore.
