NYC – Not That Bad Presentation


Author Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist, Hunger, World of Wakanda) appears in conversation with Aja Monet at the New York Public Library on Monday, June 11th at 7:00 PM. Get tickets here….

In her latest book, Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture, Roxane Gay brings together an incredible array of women to share first-person essays that directly tackle rape, assault, and harassment. The book asks what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, and aggression they face, and where they are “routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied” for speaking out. Gay will be joined in conversation by poet, educator and activist, Aja Monet, author of My Mother Was a Freedom Fighter.

LIVE from the NYPL is made possible with generous support from Celeste Bartos, Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos and Adam Bartos, and the Margaret and Herman Sokol Public Education Endowment Fund.

All proceeds from tickets go toward supporting programming at The New York Public Library.
