New York Times Best-Selling author Peggy Orenstein is coming to A Great Good Place For Books to discuss her new book Don’t Call Me Princess: Essays On Girls, Women, Sex, And Life.
The Bay Area author will be in conversation with St. Mary’s Professor and host of Stereo Embers: The Podcast, Alex Green.
Orenstein’s new book is her first-ever collection of personal essays that pull from three decades of her work–using humor, narrative velocity and incisive observational prowess, the book traces the social, political and cultural progress of girls and women in what Orenstein refers to as a “half-changed world.”
Orenstein, who is the author of Girls & Sex and Cinderella Ate My Daughter, was named by the Columbia Journalism Review as “40 women who changed the media business in the last 40 years.”
The event is this evening (3/27) at 7pm. at the popular Oakland bookstore.
