Kellogg Writers Series features Roxane Gay



UPDATE: Location has changed to Schwitzer Student Center Room 010.

By day, she teaches at Eastern Illinois University, but outside the classroom, Roxane Gay has distinguished herself nationally as a provocative writer.

Gay will read and discuss her work Thursday in the next installment of UIndy’s Kellogg Writers Series, presented by the Department of English. The free event begins at 7:30 p.m. in UIndy Hall C of Schwitzer Student Center.

Gay’s fiction, nonfiction and criticism have appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal and leading anthologies including Best American Short Stories 2012 and Best Sex Writing 2012. She blogs for Salon and The Nation and has two books forthcoming next year: her first novel, An Untamed State (Grove Atlantic), and an essay collection, Bad Feminist, (Harper Perennial).

The Allen & Helen Kellogg Writers Series brings writers of distinction to UIndy for classroom discussions and public readings, presenting a wide range of voices of national and international significance. All events are free and open to the public. Information on upcoming events is here.
