Washington County Library will host author Peggy Orenstein on Tuesday, September 25, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at R.H. Stafford Library, 8595 Central Park Place, Woodbury. This event is part of Club Book, a program of the Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA).

Orenstein is a leading voice in the national conversations around gender norms and expectations. Her influential exposes include Cinderella At My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture (2011) and Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape (2016). Orenstein has also penned a bestselling and candid memoir about her personal struggles with infertility and motherhood. She has been featured on a dozen major media outlets, including Nightline, CBS This Morning, The Today Show, and NPR's Fresh Air and Morning Edition. In 2012, the Columbia Journalism Review named Orenstein one of "40 Women Who Changed the Media Business Over 40 Years." Her latest project is a wide-ranging anthology, Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex and Life.

Made possible by Minnesota’s Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, Club Book has brought more than 100 bestselling and award-winning authors to libraries throughout the metropolitan region since its launch in 2010. Visit www.clubbook.org for more information.

All Club Book events are free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served. Doors open 45 minutes in advance of each program and books will be available for sale/signing.
