10th December 2018

In conversation on stage for the first time in the UK, Roxane Gay brings her candour and characteristic humour to contemporary culture.

Southbank Centre is proud to present the first UK appearance of the celebrated cultural critic and novelist as she touches on topics from body image to Wakanda, and everything in between.

Renowned for her sensitivity, humour and honesty, Gay is an able voice whose frank personal explorations of feminism, race, body image and pop culture shed light on our culture.

Her most recent book, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, captures the experiences, traumas and attitudes which have shaped Gay’s changing relationship with her body and what they reveal about society as a whole. Her previous book, Bad Feminist, became a New York Times bestseller, exposing the inequalities of the present with insight and piercing wit.

Price: £15 - £35
