Moon Days

moon daysPaperback edited by Cassie Preemo Steele. 176 pp. Moon Days is a great collection of women's writings on menstruation.

Twenty-six writers explore the "silent" parts of women's lives; reawakening menstruation memories of embarrassment and shame and transforming them to wonder, excitement, and laughter.

"Although women experience 'the curse' from their early teenage years until their early fifties, most of us don't discuss it in depth . . . and certainly don't write or read short stories and poetry about the subject! Moon Days, by a collection of talented authors, is for women of any age and is inspired by the wonders, embarrassment, and power of menstruation. Surprisingly, it is a very funny and touching read. I am past menopause, and who would have guessed that Moon Days would actually make me nostalgic for that significant part of my younger years."
