Hosted by Greenlight Bookstore
Writer, mother, storyteller, and multimedia producer Chloe Dulce Louvouezo joins Greenlight to share Life, I Swear, a stunning collection of essays and photographs featuring the voices of prominent Black women reflecting on self-love, healing, overcoming trials, and finding connection. A companion and culmination to Louvouezo’s podcast of the same name, the book and podcast center personal stories that offer universal insights into topics relevant to modern women’s lives, from identity and family to trauma and motherhood, told through the lens of Black women. Louvouezo is joined by contributors Eniafebiafe Isis Adewale, Nneka Julia, and Julee Wilson for a virtual celebration of their individual journeys and their shared triumph of a book.
