#GAReads | 'Our Bodies, Ourselves'? It's Shelved
after nearly 50 years, Our Bodies Ourselves, the Boston nonprofit home of the book, will stop publishing the pubescent tome amid a period of “transition.” The book, last updated in 2011, will no longer have new editions. The nonprofit organization housing their programmatic work — they reported $279,460 in revenue for its 2016 fiscal year — will now be led by volunteers.
“This is a really sad moment for our readers,” said Julie Childers, the executive director of Our Bodies Ourselves. “But we still have a strong, scrappy board of directors and 300 experts in the field to continue being a voice in the public sphere.”
