Roxane Gay has been writing with wit and grace about food and body, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. Gay comes to CHF to discuss Hunger, a brutally honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself. Join us for an evening with a writer praised as “perfectly imperfect, Gay is an unforgettable voice, coming at just the right time.” (NPR)
