An Evening with Roxane Gay
Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body

In conversation with journalist Ann Friedman
Co-presented with the JACCC
“I ate and ate and ate in the hopes that if I made myself big, my body would be safe,” writes New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay in her new book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body. With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and authority that ignite both her fiction and non-fiction explorations of the struggles of women, Gay’s new memoir navigates the female body and what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. Casting an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—Gay brings readers into the pains and joys of her daily life. In a conversation with Ann Friedman, journalist and co-host of the popular podcast Call Your Girlfriend, Gay takes the stage to share from a deeply personal and necessary story until now untold.

Each ticket will include a copy of the featured book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, which will be distributed before the program.
