"Not Just a Pretty Face"

October 7, 2007

Quick reminder: If you’re in the Boston area on Tuesday, Oct. 9, author Stacy Malkan will be reading from her book, “Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry,” at Suffolk University Law School, 120 Tremont Street, at 6:30 p.m.

The book covers the five-year effort by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics — a national coalition of health and environmental groups — to pressure the U.S. beauty industry to use safer ingredients. Malkan is communications director of Health Care Without Harm and a co-founding member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

A panel discussion with local environmental health leaders will follow Malkan’s reading. Tuesday’s event is co-sponsored by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, the Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow, and Suffolk University Center for Women’s Health and Human Rights, the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and Suffolk University Health Services and Health Education.

Additional book tour dates and more information can be found at the book’s new website, NotJustAPrettyFace.org.
