WESTERLY —  Journalist Lisa Taddeo, who has written for any number of magazines including "New York," "Esquire," "Elle" and "Glamour," will answer questions about her new book, "Three Women," Wednesday from 7 to 8 p.m. at Savoy Bookshop & Café.

For her research, Taddeo drove across the country six times to embed herself with ordinary women from different regions and backgrounds. The result is a deep, nonfiction portrait of female desire.

Based on years of immersive reporting, and told with frankness and immediacy, "Three Women" is a groundbreaking portrait of erotic longing in today’s America, exposing the fragility, complexity, and inequality of female desire with depth and emotional power. It is both a feat of journalism and a triumph of storytelling, brimming with nuance and empathy, that introduces us to three unforgettable women — and one remarkable writer — whose experiences remind us that we are not alone.
