Like free wine, amazing authors, and discussions of sexuality and literature? Then join us tonight at Greenpoint, Brooklyn's amazing indie bookstore WORD (bonus: signed copies of Women in Lust will also be for sale). Cris Mazza who co-edited the original Chick Lit way the hell back in the day is one of the co-editors of this wonderful book, along with Stacy Bierlein, Kat Meads, and In The Flesh alum and Slut Lullabies author Gina Frangello, who very kindly asked me to moderate this event, with a foreword by Steve Almond.
Female writers discuss writing the male sexual experience in a panel featuring contributors from the new anthology Men Undressed. Panelists Allison Amend, Nava Renek, and Elizabeth Searle will be in conversation with erotica author Rachel Kramer Bussel, who will also lead an audience Q&A.
Free, October 19, 7-8 pm, WORD, 126 Franklin Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (G train to Greenpoint Avenue)
From D. H. Lawrence to Philip Roth, acclaimed male writers have depicted sex from the perspective of female characters. Now, women writers from Aimee Bender to Jennifer Egan engage in provocative fictional cross-dressing, exploring sexuality from the male point of view. With a foreword by Steve Almond, this provocative collection includes work from twenty-six women in all, including Bender, Egan, Susan Minot, Elizabeth Benedict, Alicia Erian, and Diane Williams. Edited by Gina Frangello, Stacy Bierlein, Cris Mazza and Kat Meads—four women with a great deal of experience as editors (Other Voices Magazine, OV Books, anthologies) and authors.
