In 2014, Time magazine declared it "the year of Roxane Gay." Now's your chance to find out why.

Author and social critic Roxane Gay exploded onto the scene in 2014, with her novel An Untamed State and essay collection Bad Feminist. So much so, a review in Time magazine dubbed 2014 "the year of Roxane Gay." She visits Boise Thursday, Feb. 18, for a lecture on topics covered in Bad Feminist, as well as a book signing at the Boise State Student Union.

A few days later (Tuesday, Feb. 23-Thursday, Feb. 25) a mini film-festival comprised of three entries from the 2016 Family of Woman Film Festival will be screened at the Boise State Special Events Center.

Films include: The Sound of Torture, featuring the subject of the film, Meron Estefanos on Feb. 23; The Hunting Ground on Feb. 24, followed by a discussion with film subject Sofie Karasek and Boise State Title IX Director Annie Kerrick; and India’s Daughter, presented by director Leslee Udwin on Feb.25

Each screening begins at 6:30 p.m.
