The following description comes from the event organizer.
Fiercely intelligent, fantastically transgressive, Working It: Sex Workers on the Work of Sex (PM Press) is an intimate portrait of the lives of sex workers. A polyphonic story of triumph, survival, and solidarity, this collection showcases the vastly different experiences and interests of those who have traded sex; among them a brothel worker in Australia, First Nation survivors of the Canadian child welfare system, and an Afro-Latina single parent raising a radicalized child. Packed with first-person essays, interviews, poetry, drawings, mixed-media collage, and photographs, Working It honors the complexity of lived experience. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hardboiled, these dazzling pieces will go straight to the heart. Working It editor Matilda Bickers will be joined in conversation by Susan Elizabeth Shepard, Charlie Bronwyn, Kasey Champion, Domino Rey & Daphne Mae.
