The Selfie Generation Book Cover

THE SELFIE GENERATION is now available in bookstores, at Barnes & Noble, and on Amazon!

What exactly is a selfie, and why are they everywhere? Whether you happen upon them online or literally run into people taking selfies on the street, the selfie is an elusive yet consistent aspect of how people visually communicate today. In her book The Selfie Generation (Skyhorse Publishing), millennial Alicia Eler argues that selfies are more than just an image—they are a mirror into how we live today. Part memoir and written from a queer perspective, Eler’s book ultimately seeks to redefine how our culture looks at millennials.
