Castle Hill Library | Tuesday 13 September 6.30pm-7.30pm | $8.20pp
Join author Phillipa McGuinness as she talks about her new book Skin Deep: the Inside Story of Our Outer Selves. It's a book about skin. The strange wonderfulness of our bodily covering. What happens to it when something goes wrong. How the world responds to imperfection and difference. It’s about how skin makes us who we are. Skin Deep explores beauty, ageing, imperfection, health and illness, all of which are closely related to skin, and interrogates whiteness, both historically, structurally and through current notions of white fragility and victimhood.
