Samantha Mann returns to her alma mater to share her book, Putting Out: Essays on Otherness, a debut collection that showcases, in eloquent prose, the ebb and flow of discovering yourself. Putting Out's honest portrayal is both humorous and heartbreaking, as Mann grows from thoughtful teenager to an expressive, creative adult. These essays are the product of recognizing one's trauma and being cognizant and grateful for the person one becomes. The collection contributes to the important conversation on the power of female sexuality and the power in owning one's true identity and also invites a conversation on the stigma surrounding mental health. Sponsored by Women and Gender Studies.
