One of today’s most influential contemporary voices writing about gender, sexuality, race, and the issues confronting women as they navigate a difficult and often hostile world, Roxane Gay is that rare writer of fiction, essays, and journalism (and some of the sharpest and most insightful tweets around) who has become a cultural icon. In this keynote event of the Festival, Gay engages with today’s big subjects, including #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, body size, and feminism – topics that in her writing are marked by a piercing intellect and engaging empathy, as well as often heartbreaking personal disclosures, earning her the devoted following of women and men across generations. Roxane Gay talks to the co-host of BuzzFeed News’ Twitter morning show, #AMtoDM Isaac Fitzgerald.Buy tickets/get more info now
