LETTERS TO LOLA by Erin Brown
A series of essays written from Mother to daughter, this is part memoir and part lessons to live by. The author’s aim was to empower her daughter both with what she has learned and with honest stories of who her mother is and where she has been. All written years before her daughter would enter her teens- in an effort to write these stories before she needs them as a gift for when she might benefit from them most and ask for them least. Sincere, sweet and at times achingly vulnerable, it promises to be a book you return to again and again. As it bucks cultural expectations on growing up girl, Letters to Lola is meant to be shared with the young women in your life and inspire important conversations about being a woman and living well.
*Recommended reading first before sharing with younger readers due to some chapters with mature content.
