Roxane Gay is one of our most incisive voices today. Her writing on feminism and social criticism garners international acclaim. She is the author of the New York Times best-selling books Bad Feminist and Hunger and the nationally best-selling Difficult Women. Gay is also a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. Her writing has appeared in McSweeney's, The Nation, and many other publications. She recently became the first black woman to write for Marvel, creating a comic series in the Black Panther universe called World of Wakanda.

Event followed by book signing reception with Book Culture.

In this blockbuster series, Abigail Pogrebin--author and former 60 Minutes producer--unpacks the controversies, careers, and events in the news with fascinating guests. A Yale graduate, Pogrebin is the author of Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk About Being Jewish and One and the Same: My Life as an Identical Twin and What I've Learned About Everyone's Struggle to Be Singular. Her most recent book, My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew, chronicles her immersion into the Jewish calendar. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and two children.
