New York Times bestselling author, award-winning journalist, and internationally recognized speaker on gender issues, Peggy Orenstein dives into the lives of young people to unravel the hidden truths, hard lessons, and important realities of their lives. Author of several books about young people and their relationships, including Cinderella Ate My Daughter, Waiting for Daisy, SchoolGirls, and now, Boys & Sex, Orenstein, as one reviewer puts it, “dares to do what so many of us are afraid of: actually asking boys about sex and then listening to what they have to say. Their answers are illuminating, oftentimes surprising–and essential.” Another reviewer says Orenstein’s latest book is “required reading for anyone who has ever loved, raised, been, or will become a boy.” *Note, this event will not be recorded.*
