The Astoria Bookshop is thrilled to announce a reading and signing with award-winning author Roxane Gay for her new collection of short stories, Difficult Women. This will be a ticketed event on Friday, January 13, 2017 at 7:00 PM, and only those who have purchased a copy of Difficult Women will be allowed to enter the event.
You may pre-order your copy online or in store. Once capacity has been reached we will start a waitlist. The store will notify those on the waitlist as space opens up and we hope to accommodate as many people as possible, space permitting. There will be limited seating, and a ticket does not guarantee you a seat so please plan for standing-room-only. Customers who require seating for health reasons will be accommodated.
Roxane Gay is the author of the novel An Untamed State, which was a finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize for Fiction; the essay collection Bad Feminist; and Ayiti, a multi-genre collection. She is at work on a memoir, Hunger, and a comic book in Marvel’s Black Panther series. Her writing has appeared in Best American Short Stories 2012, the New York Times, the Guardian, and many others. She is a recipient of the PEN Center USA Freedom to Write Award, among other honors. She splits her time between Indiana and Los Angeles. She can be found online at www.roxanegay.com and on Twitter @rgay.
