Book/Novel Title: The Type
**Sarah Kay’s powerful spoken word poetry performances have gone viral, with more than 10 million online views and thousands more in global live audiences. In her second single-poem volume, Kay takes readers along a lyrical road toward empowerment, exploring the promise and complicated reality of being a woman.**
During her spoken word poetry performances, audiences around the world have responded strongly to Sarah Kay’s poem *The Type.* As Kay wrote in *The Huffington Post* : “Much media attention has been paid to what it means to ‘be a woman,’ but often the conversation focuses on what it means to be a woman in relation to others. I believe these relationships are important. I also think it is possible to define ourselves solely as individuals… We have the power to define ourselves: by telling our own stories, in our own words, with our own voices.”
Never-before-published in book form, *The Type* is illustrated throughout and perfect for gift-giving. **
