P&P Live!: Roxane Gay in Conversation with Alexis De Veaux
- September 4, 2020
The authors discuss The Selected Works of Audre Lorde on Tues., Sept. 8th, at 8 p.m. (EDT)!
Self-described "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet" Audre Lorde is an unforgettable voice in 20th-century literature, and one of the first to center the experiences of Black, queer women. This essential reader showcases her indelible contributions to intersectional feminism, queer theory, and critical race studies in 12 landmark essays and more than 60 poems — selected and introduced by one of our most powerful contemporary voices on race and gender, Roxane Gay.
Gay will be in conversation with Alexis De Veaux, winner of the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction and author of Warrior Poet: A Biography of Audre Lorde.

We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming — and our bookstore — afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.
