IDENTITY: Roxane Gay will talk about coming to terms with herself at Kepler's Books.

Feminist, author and college professor Roxane Gay is coming to Kepler’s to discuss her new book, Hunger. Despite a body of work that has set its sights on society as a whole—discussing pop culture, feminism and identity—her new work sees her turning that focus inward. Through her personal story she explores the feelings of otherness she felt growing up after being sexually assaulted, using her appearance as a fortress and identifying as a lesbian despite being attracted to both men and women. Through the story, Gay illustrates how we all live with contradictions and how those contradictions shape us.
