Join authors Shira Tarrant, Shawna Kenney, and Cara Bruce for an evening of Feminist Sex. Reading from their latest work, these authors explore what it means to be both anti-sexist and sex-positive.
Shira Tarrant will discuss pornography and masculinity from her newest book, Men and Feminism (Seal Press). She is also the editor of Men Speak Out: Views on Gender, Sex and Power and author of When Sex Became Gender. Shawna Kenney reads her essay, “Seven Minutes With Stripper #2,” which appears in the new anthology, Hos, Hookers, Call Girls, and Rent Boys: Professionals Writing on Life, Love, Money, and Sex (Soft Skull Press). Cara Bruce draws from her published work in Viscera, Best Bisexual Women’s Erotica, and Best Fetish Erotica.
Please join us for a rousing discussion and invigorating debate. The event will be held at 2640 St. Paul, hosted by Red Emma’s Bookstore and St. John’s United Methodist Church. A $3 – $10 sliding scale suggested donation. No one turned away for lack of funds.
