Roxane Gay is an author, cultural critic, and Nebraska English alumna whose writing is unmatched and widely revered. Her work garners international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. With a deft eye on modern culture, she brilliantly critiques its ebb and flow with both wit and ferocity.

Words like “courage,” “humor,” and “smart” are frequently deployed when describing Roxane. Her collection of essays, BAD FEMINIST, is universally considered the quintessential exploration of modern feminism. Her powerful debut novel, AN UNTAMED STATE, was long listed for the Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize. In 2017, Roxane released her highly anticipated memoir, HUNGER: A MEMOIR OF (MY) BODY, as well as a collection of short stories titled DIFFICULT WOMEN. Roxane fronts a small army of avid fans on social media and when she finds the time, she dominates the occasional Scrabble tournament.
