Growing up, did your hippie mom casually set down a copy of Our Bodies, Ourselves on the kitchen table, and just kinda leave it there? Were your naïve, Hollywood-fed impressions of hairless nudity unceremoniously slaughtered by the naked photos in this book? Did you, too, recently receive a promotional copy of the latest edition of the women’s health tome, and find the walls of your sheltered existence crumbling yet again? Maybe not. But if that sounds like the kind of cathartic experience you need on a Tuesday night, stop by Bethesda’s Barnes & Noble to hear Our Bodies Ourselves’ executive director Judy Norsigian discuss the iconic, straight-talking book, which has been in print since 1971, and blowing minds for just as long. I assure you. 7 p.m. Free.
Speaking of that time of the month, it is that time again at Café Saint-Ex: Glide, the monthly DJ night of WashPo music critic Chris Richards, returns tonight. It’s a little bit country, it’s a little bit rock and roll… no, wait, it’s neither. It’s all new age. All night. In a dark basement. Get aural. 9 p.m. Free.
Brazilian Film Week is still ragin’ at E Street Cinema, and you’ve got only a few more nights to take part. All film showings are free, courtesy of the Brazilian embassy. Check the schedule.
