Featuring Dr. Marty Klein

Dr. Marty Klein, author of America’s War on Sex and the online newsletter “ Sexual Intelligence,” will discuss sexual expression as a fundamental human right; why access to sexual information is crucial in a nation of increasing diversity; the highly effective nationwide attack on sexual information and expression - and why it's an attack on secular democracy; and the moral panic around adult pornography and minors' access to sexually-oriented material - and the special role of librarians in responding to (and protecting communities from) this moral panic.

Marty is the author of three other books: Sexual Intelligence: Politics, Culture, Media, and Sex; Beyond Orgasm: Dare to be Honest About the Sex You Really Want; and Ask Me Anything: Dr. Klein Answers the Sex Questions You'd Love to Ask.  For more information, visit his website.
