Brazos Bookstore Presents Roxane Gay in partnership with the Houston Public Library.

Online ticket sales are now closed. A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the door of The Ballroom. 

Brazos Bookstore presents Roxane Gay, reading from her new book HUNGER: A MEMOIR OF (MY) BODY. This event is presented in partnership with the Houston Public Library, and takes place on July 10 at The Ballroom at Bayou Place. This is a ticketed event. Doors open at 7pm and the reading begins at 8pm. There will be a cash bar.

Houston's own Poet Laureate, Deborah "DEEP" Mouton, will be introducing Roxane Gay.

Roxane Gay is the bestselling author of the novel AN UNTAMED STATE, the essay collection BAD FEMINIST, and the short story collection DIFFICULT WOMEN, and she's a frequent contributor to the New York Times. Her newest book, HUNGER: A MEMOIR OF (MY) BODY, explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. HUNGER is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn't yet been told but needs to be.

Tickets are $25.99 plus tax to admit one person, $30.99 plus tax to admit two people. Each ticket option comes with a hardcover copy of HUNGER. All unclaimed books must be picked up by July 24. Additional copies of HUNGER and Gay's other books will be available for purchase at the event.
