Roxane Gay reading at Hill Auditorium

. June 1, 2017.

She found comfort in that label; embracing her flaws and the flaws in what many consider an exclusive movement. Gay is celebrating the recent release of her celebrated memoir, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body with a reading and signing at Hill Auditorium this month. The acclaimed writer is an important voice in nonfiction; her work includes multiple essays, both personal and political, two other novels, and a fourth novel to be published in 2017.
