Earlier this month, Sarah Erdreich–author of the upcoming Generation Roe (on sale March 26th, 2013)–appeared at the Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., to discuss the future of the pro-choice movement and what the next step will be for abortion rights in America. The event was broadcast on C-SPAN’s Book TV, and you can now view the entire hour-long program on Book TV’s Web site.
Erdreich has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by Jezebel, Feministing, and the National Partnership for Women and Families. Now, in Generation Roe, Erdreich tells the true stories of those whose lives are most changed by this issue, and outlines the outrageous legal battlegrounds that have popped up across the country, all with frankness and candor. Gloria Steinem says Erdreich “replaces lies with honesty and myth with reality” in this, her first book.

Sarah Erdreich will be in Washington D.C. at Politics & Prose Bookstore on Monday, March 4 at 7:00pm to celebrate the launch of her new book, Generation Roe.
Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movement delves into phenomena such as “abortion-recovery counseling,” “crisis pregnancy centers,” and the infamous anti-choice “black children are an endangered species” billboards; tells the stories of those who face threats on their lives to pursue careers in this stigmatized field; outlines the outrageous legislative battle grounds that have popped up all over the country; and takes to task pro-choice activists for allowing the very words used in the debate to be controlled by anti-choice rhetoric.Sarah Erdreich Book Launch Monday, March 4th @ 7:00pm Politics & Prose Bookstore 5015 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC
