Let me shout it louder for the people in the back…TRAILS NOT SCALES! Connecting with nature is something everyone should be able to do, no matter their size or ability. In Fat Girls Hiking: An Inclusive Guide to Getting Outdoors at Any Size or Ability, author Summer Michaud-Skog creates a safe space for people of all body types to find joy in the outdoors. We were thrilled to promote such an empowering and inclusive book!
Summer is nearly here and I can’t wait to be near water again. I love everything about it – swimming laps, jumping into the ocean, kayaking down rivers – you name it! (except lakes. there’s just something about swimming in lakes that creeps me out!). Author Bonnie Tsui points out that humans, unlike other animals that are drawn to water, are not natural-born swimmers. We must be taught. Why? And why do we love it so much? Her new book, Why We Swim, takes a deep dive into this and so much more. We were thrilled to help Algonquin Books promote this unforgettable “love letter to water.”
