For Colored Girls Book Club, Moderated by Ariana Beedie!

 

Join For Colored Girls Book Club for our August meeting! We will be discussing Hunger by Roxane Gay, a body memoir. This meeting will be moderated by Ariana Beedie of Face A Face!

--

"In her phenomenally popular essays and long-running Tumblr blog, Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and body, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In Hunger, she explores her own past—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers along on her journey to understand and ultimately save herself."
