I haven't read Naomi Wolf's latest book, Vagina: A New Biography, and don't plan to, but she's in town and at Women & Children First bookstore tonight, which reminded me that I saw her there 20 years ago, and wrote about it for the Reader. (This was well before her public complaint of a sexual advance by professor and literary luminary Harold Bloom.)

Whatever confusion there might have been between substance and style that night two decades ago, Wolf made a point then that's still potent: "In a world where nine to twelve inch penises were used to sell everything, things might be more equal."

She'll be at Women & Children First at 7:30 tonight and at the Evanston Public Library at 4 PM tomorrow.
