Roxane Gay, the prominent feminist writer, cultural critic and pre-eminent voice of Woke Twitter, will appear at Octavia Books July 12 on a book tour for her new book Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body
. The much-anticipated book is expected to discuss body and food issues from the author's uniquely candid perspective. (If you aren't familiar with her work, try her periodic contributions
to the New York Times
op-ed page for an introduction to her thoughts on race and womanhood.)
This is a ticketed reading and participants must purchase a copy of the book to attend the event. More details are available via the bookstore's event announcement
. Copies of the book are $25.99.
