Roxane Gay in NYC

First blog post from a train. First time back in NYC since before I was pregnant, almost three years ago. New York’s not my home, but I still feel at home in New York. And that feels so good.

A cold and rainy Sunday night in the city to see the luminescent Roxane Gay, who delivered the Arthur Miller Freedom to Write lecture at the PEN World Voices Festival. She is truth, beauty, and brilliance, with a speaking voice that sounds like song. I feel so grateful and so inspired.

Also, she retweeted my tweet, a virtual hug. I’m walking on air all over again.

    • I feel so fortunate to have attended. I loved BAD FEMINIST too, and many of her other essays. I was struck by her presence, authenticity, insight, quick wit, and that gorgeous speaking voice.
