HILL HARPER SPEAKS TO THE SISTAHS
After the incredible success of his first motivational book, Letters to a Young Brother which was designed to get young men to fulfill their divine destiny, Hill Harper has returned. This time he's offering advice to females in Letters to a Young Sister: DeFine Your Destiny.
The book is a collection of letters to a "universal Young Sistah" that offer advice for a myriad of challenges that young women face, including, dealing with finances, sexism, peer pressure, relationships, body image, depression, and career choices.
Harper, actor, and star of CSI: NY, recruited some of his "surrogate sister-friends" and "really smart brothers" to lend their wisdom. Young sisters will read the advice, thoughts, and experiences of a stellar cast of successful personalities, including Michelle Obama, Alfre Woodard, Ciara, Sanaa Lathan, Ruby Dee, Angella Bassett, Tavis Smiley and Nikki Giovanni. Actress Gabrielle Union penned the book's foreword.
