WORD Presents Ross Gay for The Book of Delights

On Tuesday, April 9th at 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm, join WORD and author Ross Gay, as he reads from his book, answers your questions and signs his new book!


A little about of the author and his new book courtesy of WORD:

“The Book of Delights, Gay’s first prose work, is a collection of short lyric essays, written over the course of a year, that celebrates both the simple and profound joys of daily living. Though grounded in positivity, Gay never brushes over life’s complexities; these musings are written to identify delight despite the challenging times and troubled world in which we live.

While inspiring, The Book of Delights is not a how-to book or motivational journal. It is a one-of-a-kind evocation of Gay’s singular voice—funny, poetic, philosophical, and inclusive—where much of the delight is found in the very language with which delight is explored.”
