Bad Feminist

Roxane Gay is one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation. In this hysterical and sharp essay collection, she uses Sweet Valley High, The Help, and Girls, among other cultural touchstones to take readers through her journey as a woman of color while also commenting on the state of feminism today. The portrait that emerges is not only one of Gay herself, but also the media we consume. It is also a surprisingly inspirational call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better. Roxane Gay is the author of An Untamed State and Ayiti. She is a columnist for Salon, the co-editor of PANK, the essays editor for the Rumpus, and her work has also appeared in Glamour, Best American Short Stories, and the New York Times Book Review.

Debut YA Novelist: Rachel Wilson with "Don't Touch"
The Book Cellar, Friday, September 5 at 7pm
We are thrilled to host Chicago novelist, Rachel Wilson, as she celebrates the release of her debut YA book, Don't Touch.

Don't Touch is the story of Caddie. Caddie has a history of magical thinking—of playing games in her head to cope with her surroundings—but it's never been this bad before. When her parents split up, Don't Touch becomes Caddie's mantra. Maybe if she keeps from touching another person's skin, Dad will come home. She knows it doesn't make sense, but her games have never been logical. Soon, despite Alabama's humidity, she's covering every inch of her skin and wearing evening gloves to school. And that's where things get tricky. Even though Caddie's the new girl, it's hard to pass off her compulsions as artistic quirks. Friends notice things. Her drama class is all about interacting with her scene partners, especially Peter, who's auditioning for the role of Hamlet. Caddie desperately wants to play Ophelia, but if she does, she'll have to touch Peter and kiss him. Part of Caddie would love nothing more than to kiss Peter—but the other part isn't sure she's brave enough to let herself fall. Rachel M. Wilson studied theater at Northwestern University and received her MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Originally from Alabama, Rachel currently writes, acts, and teaches in Chicago, IL. Don't Touch is her first novel.
