Creating Consent Culture & The Art of Receiving and Giving - A Book Tour

Betty Martin and Marcia Baczynski have been learning and teaching consent together for over 16 years. They met through Cuddle Party (a consent workshop) and cheered each other on in the development of their own work - Betty’s Wheel of Consent, and Marcia’s Asking for What You Want. And now they have written their own books, which they will read from!

Marcia’s Creating Consent Culture simply and clearly describes what consent is, including clarifying some misconceptions, and outlines a 3 hour workshop for youth and teens. Co-authored with Erica Scott. ISBN # 978-1839971020

Betty’s The Art of Receiving and Giving: the Wheel of Consent re-defines receiving and giving and shows you how to fall in love with both of them, completely and equally. The Wheel of Consent has been called the most important and cutting-edge model for these times. ISBN # 978-1-64388-308-3

Together these two insightful books open up new understandings of consent, how to use it, and what it makes possible in your life.

Join us for a couple of short readings, followed by Q&A with the authors.
