Virtual event: Angela Chen and Sherronda J. Brown on Asexuality Possibilities
September 1, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDTFree
Presented by the San Francisco Public Library and The Booksmith: Angela Chen, author of Ace, and Sherronda J. Brown discuss asexuality, the little-known sexual orientation, and what all of us can learn–about desire, identity, culture, and relationships–when we use an asexual lens to see the world.
Angela Chen is the author of Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex, which was selected as one of the Best Books of 2020 by NPR. Her reporting and essays have also appeared in publications like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Paris Review, Lapham’s Quarterly, and more.
Sherronda J. Brown (she/they) is a Southern-grown essayist, editor, and storyteller with a focus on media analysis and cultural critique, currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of Wear Your Voice Magazine. In addition to writing and thinking about asexuality, their special interests include Blackness and queerness in horror narratives.
