Please join us on Tuesday, September 20 at 3 pm on the 6th floor of E14 for a talk and book signing with the incredible Roxane Gay. She is an author and cultural critic whose writing is unmatched and widely revered. Her work garners international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. With a deft eye on modern culture, she brilliantly critiques its ebb and flow with both wit and ferocity.
Her collection of essays, Bad Feminist, is universally considered the quintessential exploration of modern feminism. NPR named it one of the best books of the year and Salon declared the book “trailblazing.” Her powerful debut novel, An Untamed State, was long listed for the Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize. Her latest book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, is a painstaking examination of body image.
Roxane is a contributing op-ed writer for The New York Times, co-editor of PANK, and was the non-fiction editor at The Rumpus. Roxane fronts a small army of avid fans on social media and when she finds the time, she dominates the occasional Scrabble tournament.
