It’s on Us and Title IX will host an appearance by Kingston, Pennsylvania, native Kate Flannery at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30, at the Sordoni Art Gallery.

Flannery will discuss her memoir Strip Tees, share a peek at her new book with a focus on her time in NEPA and engage in a brief Q&A with a book signing to follow.

About Strip Tees

Flannery’s feminist ideals meet the real world when she becomes part of the ad campaign at American Apparel. She begins to lose herself in a landscape of rowdy sex-positivity, racy photo shoots and a cultlike devotion to the unorthodox CEO and founder of the brand. As the line between sexual liberation and exploitation grows hazy, Flannery questions the company’s ethics and wrestles with her own.
