LOCAL>> Tracy Clark-Flory – Want Me

Valentine’s Day topic, journalist/author in conversation with Peggy Orenstein

As a journalist on the “sex beat,” Tracy Clark-Flory is intimate with the complexities of how sex is understood in societal discourse.

At once a source of abashment, fascination and liberation, sex culture can send conflicting messages—sex and love are intensely personal topics yet dictated by societal rules, leaving people to struggle to understand their own needs within what they are told is “appropriate.”

In her new book Want Me: A Sex Writer’s Journey into the Heart of Desire, Tracy contextualizes her own experiences reporting on sex with personal anecdotes and expert research.

Join Clark-Flory at INFORUM for this special Valentine’s Day program to learn more about life as a journalist, the ins and outs of writing about sex and the feminist revisions of society’s expectations for women.

This conversation will be moderated by Peggy Orenstein, author of The New York Times bestsellers Girls & Sex, Cinderella Ate My Daughter and Waiting for Daisy, a memoir.
