Mitchell College Weller Center, 437 Pequot Ave, New London, CT
Award-winning journalist and author Vanessa Grigoriadis will discuss her new book Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus as part of Mitchell College’s Speakers Series. A new sexual revolution is sweeping the country, and college students are on the front lines. Vanessa Grigoriadis dispels confusion around the topic as no other writer could by traveling to schools large and small, embedding in their social whirl, and talking candidly with dozens of students – among them, both accusers and accused-- as well as administrators, parents, and researchers. Her unprecedented investigation presents a host of new truths. Presented in cooperation with Bank Square Books in Mystic, CT, copies of the book will be available for purchase that evening. The event is free and open to the public.
Vanessa Grigoriadis is a contributing editor at the New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, specializing in pop culture, youth movements, and crime reporting. She is a National Magazine Award winner and has been featured on MSNBC, CNN, Dateline, and Investigation/Discovery shows.
