SUSAN FALUDI with PEGGY ORENSTEIN at Books Inc. Berkeley

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Susan Faludi discusses her transcendent and thought provoking memoir, In the Darkroom. Susan Faludi’s father Steven abandoned her and her family when Susan was a teen. After 25 years of little to no contact Susan received an email from her father revealing that he had undergone sex reassignment surgery and that Steven was now Stephanie. So begins Susan Faludi’s extraordinary inquiry into the meaning of identity in the modern world and in her own haunted family saga. Faludi’s struggle to come to grips with her father’s metamorphosis self takes her across borders historical, political, religious, sexual--to bring her face to face with the question of the age: Is identity something you choose, or is it the very thing you can’t escape?

Susan will be in conversation with Peggy OrensteinNew York Times-bestselling author of Cinderalla Ate My Daughter and Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape.
