Modern Chastity Movement Author to Speak at DeSales, Wed., Feb. 21
Dawn Eden, deputy news editor at the New York Daily News and former rock historian turned author, will discuss her recently published book, "The Thrill of the Chaste: Finding Fulfillment While Keeping Your Clothes On," at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, February 21, in the Hurd Room in the White Pavilion of the DeSales University Center.
The event is free and open to the public. Eden will be available to sign her book, following the discussion.
In her book, Eden spearheads the modern chastity movement and the backlash against our over-sexed culture. She explains her past as an agnostic Jew, her life as a single-woman in a sex-focused world and her enlightening faith experience which turned her into a Christian. She discusses her journey and her new found life as a woman of chastity and shows other women how do to the same.
"I reevaluated not only how I related to men, but how I related to the world at large. In the process, I discovered what I describe as 'life more hope-filled, more vibrant, more real' than anything I experienced when having sex. That is the thrill of the chaste, and I want to share it with you," says Eden.
According to publisher, The Thrill of the Chaste is not a book by a virgin for virgins. It is for real women who need strong, deeply moral messages to counter the ones they receive from our superficial, sex-obsessed world. It's for women who want to live their faith, but don't know if they fit into the modern chastity movement. Eden brings her wit and wisdom to her writings and her discussions.
The event is sponsored by the DeSales University Department of Philosophy and Theology, the Student Affairs Office and the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture. Fore more information, contact 610-282-1100, ext 1244. To learn more about Eden and her work, visit thrillofthechaste.com.
