Roxane Gay is one of the most important authors alive today. She is the brilliant, unapologetic author of “Bad Feminist,” “An Untamed State,” and “Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body,” books that cover themes like gender, race, fatness, sexuality, pop culture, and politics. This past Monday, she paid a visit to the Hammer Museum to read excerpts from her latest book, “Hunger,” despite revealing during the reading that she personally hates being read to.
Our Story: The Counter-Narrative was a showcase of local slam poets and musicians that brought attention to the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement.
On the evening of December 2nd, 2014, The Hammer Museum hosted a panel titled “Literature & Gender.”
