Naked Girls Reading is part just what it sounds like, and part hard to describe. Founded by burlesque performer Michelle L'amour and her husband Franky Vivid in Chicago in 2009, the literary salon has since spread to 19 cities internationally. After briefly flaring in the Twin Cities in 2011, it returned in December 2012 in the hands of producer AJ Peterson.
Readings at the kick-off event in December were holiday themed; at the second salon, in January, the texts were about movies. On Thursday, three of the chapter's six readers ("Or the Girls," Peterson says, "with a capital G."), will focus their minds and their voices on banned and censored books.
