By all accounts, 2014 was the Year of Roxane Gay. First came the publication of "An Untamed State," her harrowing and unforgettable novel. Next was her provocative collection of essays, "Bad Feminist." Both are incontrovertible proof that she is one of the finest cultural observers writing today, unerringly putting her finger on the flashpoints of cultural identity and political life. Gay covers these pressing topics in the New York Times and many other publications. Get to know a voice that will shape American tastes for decades to come. Lindsay Hunter, author of "Don’t Kiss Me," joins Gay in lively conversation. This program is generously underwritten by Ellen Stone Belic and features an artist, writer, or other creative authority discussing her extraordinary career. This program was recorded on Nov 6, 2015 as part of the 26th annual Chicago Humanities Festival, Citizens: http://chf.to/2015Citizens See upcoming CHF events: http://chicagohumanities.org
