Say the word "hoochie" and everyone pretty much knows what you mean: A person, usually a woman, with "loose" morals. In the old days, hoochies were known as sluts and every social circle always had one. Leora Tanenbaum knows the infamy of being called a slut. Labeled one in high school, she went on to write an article about sluts for Seventeen magazine. That led to her writing the book SLUT! Growing up Female with a Bad Reputation, for which she interviewed women ranging from adolescent to senior-citizen age, many of whom boast of attaining high achievements. (No, they didn't sleep their way to the top!) Tanenbaum, a freelance writer for the Nation, Ms., and Newsday, reads from and discusses her book tonight at 8:00 at Books & Books, 296 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables. Admission is free. Call 305-442-4408. (NK)
