Author Talk: I Am More Than My Hair by Alyscia Cunningham

Saturday, March 14, 2020, 2:30 p.m.

Visit West End library for an author talk with Alyscia Cunningham, on her book I Am More Than My Hair: My Outward Appearance Does Not Define Me.

About the Book:
From the time we are young, girls are pressured into a set belief of beauty standards. Hair is certainly high on the list and is often labeled as our "crown and glory." Where does this notion fit for a girl with alopecia (baldness; the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows)? This new coffee table book should bring light to the issue. I Am More Than My Hair: My Outward Appearance Does Not Define Me, is a two-part project: documentary film and coffee table book. The book features 138 portraits of 46 women and the stories of their experience with hair loss, as well as women who cut their hair in solidarity with a loved one. 10% of sale proceeds will be donated to Children's Alopecia Project (CAP). CAP changes the emphasis from growing hair to growing confidence.

About the Author:
Alyscia Cunningham is an entrepreneur, author, filmmaker and photographer who has contributed to the Smithsonian, National Geographic, Discovery Channel and AOL. After the outstanding success of her first book, Feminine Transitions, a photographic book featuring portraits of raw feminine beauty, Cunningham has written and published her second pictorial book and the much-anticipated documentary film, I Am More Than My Hair.
