For years, Marcia Baczynski and Betty Martin have been colleagues and friends, teaching consent first through their joint work with Cuddle Party, and cheering each other on in the development of their own work — Betty’s Wheel of Consent, and Marcia’s Asking for What You Want. And now they have written their own books, which they will read from!

Betty’s book, The Art of Receiving and Giving: the Wheel of Consent, was published last year. Marcia’s book, co-authored with Erica Scott, Creating Consent Culture: A Handbook for Educators, was published this year.

When talking recently, we realized we could have a blast doing a joint book tour (and it’s also a good excuse to road trip up the West Coast.) So here we are!
