The Hookup Culture

At the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton

    Donna Freitas, author of “The End of Sex: How Hookup Culture Is Leaving a Generation Unhappy, Sexually Unfulfilled, and Confused About Intimacy,” will speak at the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton on Dec. 2 at 5:30 p.m. Her talk will address the social challenges faced by young people today as they begin to lead independent lives.

    Dr. Freitas, who has a Ph.D. in religious studies from Catholic University, has written three young-adult novels, a middle-grade novel, and five adult nonfiction books, including “Sex and the Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance, and Religion on American’s College Campuses.”

    “The End of Sex,” which was published by Basic Books in April, has generated national attention. The Atlantic called it “an important, wise, and brave new book” and The Wall Street Journal said, “Freitas’s book is a timely and alarming wake-up call.”

    The library is taking advance reservations for the talk, which is expected to draw a crowd.
