Roxane GayA Reading by Roxane Gay

Roxane Gay will be reading from her latest work Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, a powerful and deeply personal exploration of what it means to be a woman in an "unruly" body, what it means to nurture oneself through all one's hungers, and how to find a home in the world that is not always or even often safe, but is sometimes beautiful. For anyone who has struggled to find solace after violence or to recognize the ambivalent power of their own human body, Gay’s memoir is a gift that will open eyes and hearts. Tickets are $28.30 and a copy of Gay’s memoir is included in the cost. Visit Eventbrite for tickets and more detailed event information. This reading is co-hosted by Charis and Agnes Scott College.
