Since the publication of the bestsellers Bad Feminist and Hunger, author, cultural critic, and New York Times contributing Opinion writer Roxane Gay has continued to tackle big issues embroiling society alongside more individually personalized matters. In Opinions: A Decade of Arguments, Criticism, and Minding Other People’s Business, Gay offers a collection of her best nonfiction pieces from the past ten years. 

The sharp, thought-provoking anthology covers a wide range of topics—politics, feminism, the culture wars, civil rights, online disinformation, and more—with a new introduction in which Gay reflects on the past decade in America. Plus, she addresses questions similar to those she tackles as the New York Times “Work Friend” columnist: can I tell my co-worker her perfume makes me sneeze? Is it acceptable to schedule a daily 8 am meeting?  

Gay, the Gloria Steinem endowed chair of media, culture, and feminist studies at Rutgers, is also the author of Marvel’s World of Wakanda and the short story collections Difficult Women and Ayiti, among other writing. She will be in conversation with Juanita Tolliver, host of Crooked Media’s “What A Day” podcast, MSNBC political analyst, opinion contributor for theGrio, and contributor and guest host for SiriusXM Progress. Book signing to follow.
