Naturally Tan: A Memoir
by: Tan France

“Tan France has wife words to offer across all areas of life. France gives readers a candid and intimate look at his past and shares all that he’s learned about being a spouse, television personality, and role model.”―Time

Fashion designer Tan France has been behind-the-scenes for over 15 years, and now steps into the spotlight as the star of Emmy-winning makeover hit, and Netflix reboot, Queer Eye. He tells his origin story for the first time. With his trademark wit, humour, and radical compassion, Tan reveals what it was like to grow up gay in a traditional South Asian family, as one of the few people of colour in South Yorkshire, England. He reveals how he found his voice (and style!), and marrying the love of his life―a Mormon cowboy from Salt Lake City.

Unlearn: 101 Life Lessons Without the Bullsh*t
by: Humble The Poet

The author says it best, “This book isn’t about empty words and mantras, and I won’t ask you to stare in the mirror screaming affirmations (though that would probably help). This book, and the truths in it, is about way more than just believing. This book talks about knowing through understanding. This book is not about ignoring the negative voices that exist outside and within. It is about staring them in the eye and saying out loud, “I disagree!” Your struggles are real. If you thought reading this book will make things easier, you’ve got the wrong book. I’m not here to sell you the idea that anything can be easy, but I am here to remind you that you’re worth the difficulties that come with improving your life.”

His whirlwind book tour also had him chatting it up with Charlamagne tha God on the popular American nationally syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club”. Next level stuff indeed.
