“Roxane Gay is the brilliant girl-next-door: your best friend and your sharpest critic.”
As an essayist, novelist, and New York Times contributor, Roxane Gay unerringly puts her finger on the flashpoints of cultural identity and political life, providing a way into issues that are often frustratingly difficult and seemingly impossible to parse. In anticipation of her soon-to-be-released memoir, Hunger, she comes to Scripps to discuss activism, feminism, and offer us a sneak peek at how she navigates the complexities of food, weight, and self-image. She will be joined in conversation with writer Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah.
