A book about 30

A few months ago I contributed an essay to a book project about turning 30, and now it has been published.

The contributors are all lovely and talented women around the age of 30 who wrote about how that birthday affected them. My friend Sarah designed it. We published it ourselves, and you can buy it here on blurb.

We also decided that $5 from every sale would go to The Girl Effect, a great nonprofit that helps adolescent girls living in poverty.

It’s so exciting to see a project like this come together, and I can’t wait to read everyone’s work. As I said at the time, turning 30 did not produce the major anxiety attack I thought it might, mostly because things were going so well for me and I was too busy to be worried about it. But it’s definitely a point of reflection, and I think we all felt it was significant.
