University Forum: Roxane Gay

Join us for "An Evening With Roxane Gay" at the University Forum with Roxane Gay, the New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist and a widely followed social commentator.

Bad Feminist, described in the Guardian as “a manual on how to be human,” is considered a quintessential study of modern feminism. She is also the author of Difficult Women, a collection of short stories, and Hunger, a memoir about food, weight, and Gay’s struggles to embrace a positive image of her body. Queerty named her to their list of fifty heroes “leading the nation toward equality, acceptance, and dignity for all people." She has written a series in the Black Panther universe called World of Wakanda, is a contributing writer at The New York Times, writes the newsletter “The Audacity,” and hosts the podcast “The Roxane Gay Agenda.”
