When: Tue., May 17, 7 p.m. 2011
One legendary porn kingpin. One Columbia University history prof. Combine the two and you get the randy but well-researched One Nation Under Sex, packed to the gills with the sexual proclivities of White House residents James Buchanan (gay!), Eleanor Roosevelt (gay!), Dolly Madison (loose!), Ben Franklin (very big in Paris!), and many, many more. Authors Larry Flynt and David Eisenbach will share salacious excerpts on Tuesday, May 17, at Books Inc. (1760 Fourth St., Berkeley). 7 p.m., free. 510-525-7777 or BooksInc.net.
