Event Description

The Albuquerque launch for Alisa Valdes' newest book, "The Feminist And The Cowboy."

The bestselling author of "The Dirty Girls Social Club" returns with an engrossing memoir about how falling in love with a sexy cowboy turned her feminist beliefs upside down.

At 22, Valdes was named one of the top feminist writers under 30 by the editor of Ms. magazine. But despite her professional success, she hit 42 a single mom and serial dater of inadequate men in tweed jackets — until she met the Cowboy. A conservative rancher, the Cowboy held the traditional views on gender roles that Valdes was raised to reject. Yet, as she falls head-over-spurs for him and their relationship finds harmony, she finds the strength, peace and happiness that comes from embracing her femininity. From their first date, the Cowboy makes her pulse race and she discovers that "when men ... act like men rather than like emasculated boys, you as a woman will find not only great pleasure in submitting to them but also great growth as a person."

Told with plenty of humor and candor, "The Feminist and the Cowboy" will delight the many readers who made "The Pioneer Woman" a bestseller — not to mention every woman who dreams of being swept away by a rugged cowboy.
