Start: 6:30 pm
February means romance, but this year we decided to skip the hearts and flowers and go straight to the birds and the bees. That's right, we're having our first-ever SEX-THEMED BOOKSWAP. Bring a book that makes you blush. You'll share it in small groups, and at the end, we'll have a big, rowdy, white-elephant swap. $25 gets you dinner, an open bar, swag, and the chance to REALLY get to know each other. Amy Stephenson, resident Booksmith pervert, to host. Our special guest this evening is Eric Berkowitz, a San Francisco-based author, journalist and civil rights lawyer. He has published widely on a variety of subjects, including domestic violence, sexual politics and history, and corruption in the state justice system. His book, Sex and Punishment: Four Thousand Years of Judging Desire, has received rave reviews worldwide and, in addition to the UK, it is set for release in Japan, China, and Turkey.
