Anna Borges, Senior Health Editor at Self and author of The More or Less Definitive Guide to Self-Care, will host the panel discussion about intersectional self-care focusing on things like how identity influences self-care, barriers to self-care, how good self-care differs from the commercialized shiny thing people have come to see it as, etc.

The actual panel will be comprised of three voices. The first panelist is Lane Moore, former Sex & Relationships Editor for Cosmopolitan and bestselling author of How to Be Alone . The second panelist is Jeffrey Marsh, influencer host and author of How to Be You. And the final voice is Conz Preti, a mother and editor of Mother.ly.

Self-care is everywhere—but sound-bites on this trendy subject tend to focus more on face masks and bubble baths than on its key objective: mental health. Now, top health writer Anna Borges is here to fix that in The More or Less Definitive Guide to Self-Care.

Formerly at BuzzFeed, Borges helped popularize the self-care movement in the first place, and her book distills the “self-care internet” into an A to Z list with over 200 entries—from soul-searching prompts to simple pick-me-ups. Readers can tailor their own routines by choosing among Borges’s strategies, which cover four distinctive realms of self-care: physical, mental, social, and spiritual.

Drawing on real-world experience (her own and others’) as well as expert advice, Borges empowers readers to take charge of their well-being. This beautifully illustrated guide is a one-stop shop for mind, body, and soul.

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Anna, Lane, Jeffrey, and Conz talk about all the best ways to take care of yourself!
