"Doll" reading and Q&A by Maria Teresa Hart



Broadside Bookshop (247 Main Street, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)

Maria Teresa Hart reads and discusses her book *Doll,* a feminist pop-culture critique of doll history and doll culture, from Raggedy Ann to Barbie to android sex dolls. The Q&A covers loads of weird and fascinating doll facts. (Care to know Barbie's first job before her "teen model" days?) And it gives serious examination to the messages that shape girlhood and womanhood.
