 What I learned About Sex From Reading

Alissa Nutting’s bold debut Tampa is about predatory sex. Jessie Cole’s new novel, Deeper Water, tends towards sensuality and tenderness. Find out what these two writers learnt about sex while writing about it – and what lessons there are for readers. In conversation with Bethanie Blanchard.

Friday, 29th August, 1pm. At ACMI The Cube.
