Join us on Wednesday, January 27, 2020 at 6:30 pm for a ZOOM conversation with writer Roxane Gay. Presented in conversation with SNMA Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian, Roxane will discuss her latest book “The Selected Works of Audre Lorde”.

 

About “The Selected Works of Audre Lorde”

 

Self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” Audre Lorde is an unforgettable voice in twentieth-century literature, and one of the first to center the experiences of black, queer women. This essential reader showcases her indelible contributions to intersectional feminism, queer theory, and critical race studies in twelve landmark essays and more than sixty poems—selected and introduced by one of our most powerful contemporary voices on race and gender, Roxane Gay.

 

The event is free, open to the public, and conducted via ZOOM.
