Sat Oct 1, 7:00PM


As girls enter adolescence, the focus is often on their changing physical appearance. The less-discussed part of girls’ emerging sexuality is their own desire, which can be inchoate but powerful. How does acknowledging this complicate our narratives about innocence, responsibility, and identity? Sari Wilson, author the novel Girl Through Glass, and Zoe Zolbrod, author of the memoir The Telling will discuss how this question plays out in their recent works, both set in the 1970s and 1980s where mores were changing.
