Vanessa Grigoriadis FAN Event

At this event sponored by The Family Action Network, Vanessa Grigoriadis, a Contributing Editor to The New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, will discuss her new book, Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus, an authoritative, you-are-there account of the current state of sex on college campuses and its dramatic impact on gender issues throughout America.

"An essential handbook for college students who must navigate the hazards of social media, online porn, gender fluidity, and mind-altering substances while peeling the onion layers of "consent." It's also required reading for any parent of college-bound children who wants to protect them from making mistakes that can ruin their lives." -- John Seabrook, author of The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory 

"Grigoriadis covers the often lecherous, always treacherous landscape of campus sex as nobody else has or could. She throws bright, fresh light on an array of collegiate characters who are sometimes appalling, sometimes appealing, and sometimes a bit of both--from Baylor's out-of-control football stars to Columbia's so-called Mattress Girl to a Syracuse student who dubs herself "Blackout Blonde." She brings rare empathy and discernment to all sides of this fray. Oh, and she writes like a dream." -- John Heilemann, co-author of Game Change and Double Down
