Dirty Old Women - Erotica 730pm
Older women: Wise enough to tell the truth about sex – what they want, what they've done, what makes them hot. Dirty Old Women, a monthly series at Octopus, celebrates erotic writing by self-identified older women of all flavors.
This month the featured readers are Kristin McCloy and j mork.
Kristin McCloy is the author of three novels, Velocity, Some Girls, and Hollywood Savage. (For more about her life, read her mother's just-published memoir, Six Car Lengths Behind an Elephant: Undercover and Overwhelmed as a CIA Wife and Mother.) Kristin lives in Oakland, and takes care of animals while she finishes her fourth novel.
J mork got a degree in ceramics and promptly realized full-time ceramics jobs were not available. Her great theater ability let her into her life's real vocation: sex work. Her writing reflects her 15 years of experience as a sex worker in the Bay Area. As a person who has had cancer, she also investigates how Western medicine systems and ideologies intersect with human sexuality. Her work has been anthologized, and she's a popular reader at events including Litquake.
Open mike starts at 7:30 and is open to all; featured readings begin at 8 pm. Dirty Old Women is hosted by Susan Kuchinskas. This event is free, inclusive and accessible
