LA – Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body Signing

Press Release:

Octavia Books is thrilled beyond measure to be featuring New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay on her HUNGER book tour! Local author Maurice Carlos Ruffin will introduce and interview Ms. Gay at an event at the New Orleans JCC on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

You must pre-purchase the book from Octavia Books to attend the event. Details at the link.

Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In HUNGER, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties–including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life–and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life.

With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane Gay explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. HUNGER is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn’t yet been told but needs to be.

This event was originally planned as an in-store event, but has been moved to the JCC to accommodate larger demand. We are very grateful to the JCC for partnering with Octavia Books in support of this important community event.

Roxane Gay is the author of the nonfiction BAD FEMINIST, which was a New York Times bestseller; the novel AN UNTAMED STATE, a finalist for the Dayton Peace Prize; and the story collection, AYITI. An opinion contributor to The New York Times, she has also written for Time, McSweeney’s, the Virginia Quarterly Review, the Los Angeles Times, The Nation, The Rumpus, Bookforum, Slate, and Salon, where she was a featured columnist. Her fiction has also been selected for Best American Short Stories 2012, and Best American Mystery Stories 2014, and other publications. She lives in Lafayette, Indiana.
