Roxane Gay's «Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body» is personal, intimate, searing. Using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health, Gay confronts 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.

We'll be hosting two nights of discussion about the book. The first night, Wednesday August 16th, is open to anyone. The second night, Thursday August 17th at 7pm, is a special evening for fat women only (roughly defined as women who wear a size 20 and up).
