Katrina Majkut "The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride" The Public Library with Helen Little

"The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride: What No One Tells You Before You Say 'I Do'" invites readers to join author Katrina Majkut on a personal and powerful prenuptial journey. With fearless curiosity and fun feminism, the book asks such questions as: Why do brides need their parents’ permission to marry? Why don’t men wear engagement rings? And why do women change their surname? With cheeky insights into the origins of Western wedding traditions (like how the wedding cake is not just dessert but a sexy fertility talisman), Majkut uncovers eye-opening truths about how social traditions impact people’s lives.
