Description

The book explores the relationship between femininity and body hair as well as the intersections of family, class, the immigrant experience, Latina identity, and much more, all through Lozada-Oliva’s unique lens and striking voice. Peluda is a powerful testimony on body image and the triumph over taboo.

Melissa Lozada-Oliva is a spoken word poet & educator living in Boston whose fierceness and charm have made her a poetry phenomenon, with her work appearing on Upworthy, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and countless other media outlets. Melissa’s ability to speak truth to power as an unapologetically feminist Latina comes as a breath of fresh air to people expecting the “same old poetry.” Blending power, warmth, and flat-out hilarity, Melissa leaves readers and audiences not only excited about changing the world, but excited about being a part of that change.
