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

Press Release:

Harvard Book Store welcomes the bestselling author of An Untamed State, Bad Feminist, and Difficult Women ROXANE GAY for a presentation of her latest book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body on Wednesday, June 14th at 7:00 PM.

About Hunger:
New York Times–bestselling author 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 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.

Signing Guidelines
Roxane will sign books for anyone who would like, including backlist. In the interest of time, we will only be doing personalizing for copies of Hunger. In the interest of time, no posed photos with the author. Photos can be taken from the line, only.

Purchase the Book
Featured event books will be for sale at the event. Thank you for supporting this author series with your purchases.
