Left Bank Books Author Series — Roxane Gay: Bad Feminist

In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django Unchained) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.

    GPS took me to the wrong place. On my way. Feel free to go in and find seats if it's getting crowded.

    Hi everyone. How does everyone feel about meeting up out front of Left Bank Books 15 min ahead of time, so we can go in and find a seat? We can try to save a few seats for anyone running late, but that comes with no promises. I've never been here and don't know how crowded it will be. Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
