Award-winner, New York Times food writer, Melissa Clark, reads from her new book, Dinner: Changing the Game.
(“ Melissa Clark will take your tired dinner repertoire, shake it out, and give it a transfusion of enthusiasm, flavor, and whip-smart efficiency. In Dinner, she takes the timeless task of cooking pleasing yet inspiring dinners and waves away the challenge. Dinner won’t get Melissa —or you—down. She had me dreaming of kofte and kimchi pork chops, coconut rice noodles and green aioli chicken salad.” — Amanda Hesser).

Award-winning, bestselling writer, Elinor Lipman, reads from her novel, On Turpentine Lane.
 
(“On Turpentine Lane’ is constructed with an almost scary mastery. Not a single thread dangles, not a single character is left without a place in Faith’s world.  The story folds out and back in as neatly as an origami flower…” The New York Times Book Review).

Award-winning writer, Kaitlyn Greenidge, reads from her debut novel, We Love You, Charlie Freeman.
(“ Terrifically auspicious . . . Ms. Greenidge has charted an ambitious course for a book that begins so mock-innocently. And she lets the suspicion and outrage mount as the Freemans’ true situation unfolds. This author is also a historian, and she makes the ‘1929’ on Toneybee plaque tell another, equally gripping story that strongly parallels the Freemans’ 1990 experience.” — Janet Maslin, The New York Times).

Editor of The New York Times Book Review & writer, Pamela Paul, reads from her memoir, My Life with Bob: Flawed Heroine Keeps Book of Books; Plot Ensues.
(“In this hilarious, wise, and elegiac account of a life led half in the world and half in books, Pamela Paul writes with courage and exuberance about the bumpy road to maturity. Her voice―tender, moral, madcap, nostalgic, generous―will captivate all but the most stony reader. My Life with Bob is full of hope, full of love, a joyful and poignant reflection on the well-written sentence and the well-lived life.” Andrew Solomon).

Award-winning, best-selling writer, Colum McCann reads from his new book, Letters to a Young Writer: Some Practical and Philosophical Advice.
(“ McCann is a passionate writer whose impulse is always toward a generous understanding of his diverse characters.”— The Wall Street Journal ).

The Wall Street Journal’s award-winning editor and writer, David Enrich, reads from his debut book, The Spider Network: The Wild Story of a Math Genius, a Gang of Backstabbing Bankers, and One of the Greatest Scams in Financial History
(“ The Spider Network will snare you in its web of deceit, lies, corruption, manipulation and colorful characters. David Enrich’s brilliant investigative expose will reverberate from Wall Street to Main Street.” Harlan Coben, bestselling author).
