Our May meeting of the non-fiction book club will discuss Virginia Grise's Your Healing Is Killing Me, a timely book about self-love and communal well-being.
Your Healing Is Killing Me is a performance manifesto based on lessons learned in San Antonio free health clinics and New York acupuncture schools; from the treatments and consejos of curanderas, abortion doctors, Marxist artists, community health workers, and bourgie dermatologists. One artist's reflections on living with post-traumatic stress disorder, ansia, and eczema in the new age of trigger warnings, the master cleanse, and crowd-funded self-care. Unprocessed, gluten, and guilt-free. Capitalism is toxic but the Revolution is not in your body butter.
