Tuesdays back from a long weekend are tough so we're grabbing a glass of wine & enjoying a little empowerment this evening !Reserve yours at RPL or on CloudLibrary today !REPOST from @penguinbooks .“Elaine gifts us all with a beautifully intimate and powerful retelling of her ever unfolding journey. In sharing her joys, pitfalls, adventures, self doubt, and successes, she reminds us that through uncovering and discovering the many facets of ourselves, we are more than enough.” — @yarashahidi“Elaine’s book is a call for young women to find their voice and spark their courage—it’s a book I would have loved to have discovered as a young woman starting my own career.” — @reesewitherspoon“This isn’t just a coming of age story, it’s a book about coming into your own and embracing who you are. As we follow Elaine’s journey, she sheds a bright light on what happens when a black girl not only decides to be the master of her own destiny but challenges what the world thinks a black girl’s destiny should be.” — @lenawaitheBasking in the beauty of #MoreThanEnough by @elainewelteroth today! ☀️☀️ (📸: @elainewelteroth
