Close your eyes. Now picture yourself sitting amongst a bookstore bustling with a thick palpable energy, eagerly awaiting author and feminist porn icon, Madison Young to step up onto the small stage, with her recently released memoir, “Daddy” clutched firmly in her hands. As this San Franciscan kinkster and radical performance artist reads to you with passion and intimacy you feel as if you are simultaneously the only one in the room and a part of something bigger than yourself, as she opens her lips and shares her stories of heroism, heart break, and struggles in the fight for sexual freedom and the visceral journey of sexual discovery through the lens of a feminist submissive who grew up in the heartland of America.
Madison Young is delighted to read from her intimate and critically acclaimed feminist erotic literary sensation – Daddy: A Memoir – which was called “The Real Life 50 Shades of Grey” by the SF Weekly and “..Powerful, erotic prose.” by Academy Award winner Diablo Cody while Actress Margaret Cho says of Young “…an incredible and singular force in the world of art….her individualism, innovation, insight and innate intelligence …is downright inspirational.”
Madison will be appearing in Los Angeles at Echo Park’s Stories Bookstore to read in person from Daddy: A Memoir on July 22nd at 7:30pm.
Madison’s real life literary narrative ushers the reader into a world of a young girl from Ohio who leaves the heartland for California in search of a sense of belonging. Swan dive down this wild rabbit hole as author Madison Young pairs a sense of both strength and vulnerability into her literary journey of carnal sex, desire, and BDSM with fierce feminist ideology in this courageous account of a young woman coming of age and finding home.
Madison Young, author and radical feminist performance artist and director, spoke of her excitement about the reading stating “I’m so thrilled to be reading at Stories. Many of my sexual adventures that I explore in my book were instigated right here in Los Angeles and I’m so thrilled to be presenting these tales for the first time to Los Angeles audience here at Stories Bookstore.”
The reading will be followed by a to not be missed Q&A and book signing with Madison Young.
