reading & booksigning for "Sex For America: Politically Inspired Erotica"
Tuesday, March 25 at 7:00 pm
at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco)

From Monica Lewinsky’s stained dress to Larry Craig’s bathroom tendencies, its fair to say sex and politics are inextricably commingled. In the just released anthology, "Sex For America: Politically Inspired Erotica," Stephen Elliott brings together writers who explore the intersection of sexual desire and political belief. Joining us for this special event will be contributors Nick Flynn, Anthony Swofford, and Michelle Richmond.

Stephen Elliott, in addition to being a former stripper, is the author of six books including Happy Baby, a finalist for the New York Public Library’s Young Lion Award. Originally from Chicago, Elliott was a Stegner Fellow at Stanford, where he now teaches, and is a member of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. He is also the founder of the Progressive Reading Series, which helps authors raise money for and participate on behalf of progressive candidates across the country.

This Booksmith sponsored event will take place at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco). For further information, call 415-863-8688 or visit If you can't attend this event and would like to order a signed copy of the author's new book, please email or phone our store.
