Looks like I *am* going to be where I wanted to be this Thursday evening, 9/22, Taster from Rhona Schwartz's Review piece
Taster from Rhona Schwartz's Review piece
"For island author Nancy Blakey, no topic was taboo or eyebrow-raising when it came to talking to her four children.Until the day the island mom asked her 16-year-old daughter if she was having sex.Jenna smiled, looked down at her hands and replied, “Why do you ask?”Blindsided by this implicit “yes,” Blakely said she “spewed” and was stunned by her own reaction. What happened next became the fodder for her essay “Sex Education,” which is included in "I Wanna Be Sedated" (Seal Press)"
There goes my lone chance to steer my daughter straight.
