Dirty Words night
I had so much fun at Dirty Words
night! Thank you to everyone who read, and especially Ellen Sussman,
editor extraordinaire. This book is beautiful inside and out and I urge you all to read it; it's so full of sex in so many different forms. Here's a photo of all of us by Stacie Joy.
