A Celebration of Audre Lorde with Roxane Gay

Upon the publication of The Selected Works of Audre Lorde, Roxane Gay, the volume’s editor, is joined by Mahogany L. Browne, Saeed Jones and Porsha Olayiwola for a reading of Lorde’s poetry and prose and conversation about her life and legacy.

“Lorde is a towering figure in the world of letters,” Gay writes in her introduction. “She was the first writer I ever read who lived and loved the way I did and also looked like me. She was a beacon, a guiding light. And she was far more than that because her prose and poetry astonished me—intelligent, fierce, powerful, sensual, provocative, indelible.”

Copies of The Selected Works of Audre Lorde can be purchased from bookshop.org.
