DC TONIGHT: Final stop on the Reality Bites Back book tour

Tonight in Washington, D.C., I’m holding my last official reading on the Reality Bites Back book tour. It is listed in the Washington Post’sGoing Out Guide Blog,” and their “Going Out Guide.” There’s also a brief interview with the Express.

Tonight, the final official book reading will be held at Busboys & Poets on 14th & V in Washington, DC from 6:30-8pm. RSVP on Facebook (though walk-ins are fine, too). If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll come out for a lively discussion about gender, race and class in entertainment media — and support a fantastic local independent DC bookstore and cafe.

This month has been incredible. Journalists from Newsweek, Macleans, Ms. magazine, AOL TV Squad, the St. Petersburg Times, the Denver Post, B*tch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture, The American Prospect, and many more have written about the book. That was never a given for a feminist, anti-racist analysis of corporate media which includes extensive critique of product placement, advertising, and media consolidation — not to mention a conclusion featuring strategies for making change from more than a dozen media activists.

Over the course of two+weeks, I’ve been involved with discussions about gender, race, class and consumption in reality TV in New York, Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Wellesley, and Boston during 11 panel discussions, readings, book signings, and parties. I’ll do a report-back from all these events once I get home later this week, but for now, just know that I deeply appreciate the incredible support so many of you have shown toward me and this book, and how enthusiastic so many of you have been about media literacy.

D.C.-area TV fans, friends, progressives, feminists, and critical thinkers, I look forward to seeing you tonight at Busboys and Poets!
