Using her latest book, “See Me Naked: Stories of Sexual Exile in American Christianity”, and her work as a cultural critic, Amy Frykholm will examine the relationship between religion and sexuality in books, movies, and television in a presentation sponsored by Collegiate Peaks Forum Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Congregational United Church of Christ, 217 Crossman Avenue in Buena Vista.

Frykholm is well trained both by her PhD in literature from Duke University, as well as the variety of topics in her three books, to be writer, critic and speaker in the fields of religion and culture. She is associate editor for The Christian Century, for which she writes feature stories, identifies contributors and solicits articles on christianity, ecumenism, human connection and contemporary life.

Collegiate Peaks Forum Series is in its 10th year bringing lecturers at no cost to the public on philosophy, religion and science to audiences in Salida, Buena Vista and Leadville.
