In his comprehensive history of the internment of Japanese and Japanese-American residents during World War II, Reeves, prize-winning historian, veteran journalist, and currently senior lecturer at the Annenberg School, draws on interviews, correspondence, and troves of private and public papers of some of the 120,000 interned civilians.

This picture book biography of Renaissance man Gordon Parks—most famous for being the first black director in Hollywood—explores his early artistic career, when the decision to buy a used camera for $7.50 changed the direction of his life. Parks spent time in DC working for the government, and instead of turning his camera to looming marble monuments, documented the lives of other African-Americans living in the city.

Brooklyn-based Akashic Books was founded in 1996 with its goal “to make literature more a part of popular culture, not just a part of elitist culture.” In his third Dewey Decimal novel, The Immune System, Nathan Larson, who is also an award-winning film-music composer, concludes the trilogy with his anti-hero at last forced to confront the truth of past events and his role in them—especially the momentous 2/14 destruction of New York City. In Love Maps, Eliza Factor, author of The Mercury Fountain, follows artist Sarah Marker as she struggles with both art and her estranged husband’s sudden reappearance in her life. In The Sunshine Crust Baking Factory, Stacy Wakefield, co-creator of the photo/essay book Please Take Me Off the Guest List, complements her nonfiction Not for Rent with this fictional look at the 1990s anarchist squatting scene as experienced by a woman named Sid and a band of “misfits. Vocalist and guitarist with The Warmers, Alec MacKaye has also been a member of hardcore bands including Untouchables, The Faith, and Ignition. When he was just a fourteen-year-old punker, he teamed up with Lucian Perkins to annotate Hard Art, the future Pulitzer-winning photographer’s images of the D.C. music scene. It was 1979 and things were about to explode; today, the book that contains the pictures and MacKaye’s narration is a classic.

Hopper’s take on two decades of rock music isn’t just a history of bands and musical trends, from Michael Jackson to emo, Nirvana to Riot Girrrl, it is astute cultural criticism that uses music as a lens to bring various currents of contemporary life into sharper focus. Including early work in punk fanzines, and later pieces published in GQ, Rolling Stone, The Chicago Reader, and other publications (some of these essays were selected for the DaCapo Best of Music Writing series in 2004, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011), this collection showcases Hopper’s extraordinary range and vision.

Hopper will be in conversation with Chris Richards, The Washington Post’s pop music critic.

Lincoln oversaw the start of the Civil War but was not there for its end or, more importantly, for the Reconstruction of the South and the nation as a whole. In his analysis of how Lincoln’s post-war vision of America might have played out, Masur, Rutgers professor of history and American studies and author of Lincoln’s Hundred Days, among others, focuses on the president’s final address, delivered in April 1865.

One-hundred-fifty years after it ended, the Civil War continues to generate passionate feelings, vivid reenactments, and many, many books. In his study of what this conflict means to America, McPherson, Princeton professor emeritus and Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian, draws on his decades of study to show that the issues we struggle with today—equality, racism, states’ rights, social change—have their roots in the Civil War.

Focusing on recent free speech controversies across the nation, Shipler maps a rapidly shifting topography of political and cultural norms: parents in Michigan rallying to teachers vilified for their reading lists; conservative ministers risking their churches' tax-exempt status to preach politics from the pulpit; national security reporters using techniques more common in dictatorships to avoid leak prosecution; Theater J, a Washington, D.C. Jewish theater, the struggling for creative control in the face of protests targeting productions critical of Israel; history teachers in Texas quietly bypassing a reactionary curriculum to give students access to unapproved perspectives; the mixed blessings of the Internet as a forum for dialogue about race.

Thomas Mapfumo was born in Rhodesia in 1945 and his earliest musical influence was American rock. When his nation became Zimbabwe, Mapfumo drew more extensively on traditional African sounds and instruments, his music echoing the continent’s post-colonial trajectory. Eyre—a guitarist who has performed with the legendary musician—is the producer and senior editor of public radio’s Afropop Worldwide and has written three books on Africa and music, including In Griot Time; his portrait of Mapfumo is as much the story of twentieth-century African music and history as it is the biography of one influential cultural figure.

Dissent is not new; since humans have had voices, they have raised them, as Young has demonstrated in his classic Dissent in America, a gathering of primary documents from the last four hundred years. Young has also produced a concise version of the book and has taught the subject at universities in Rome and Prague. His new book explores the particular ways dissenters have used their sense of injustice, periodically calling on the United States to keep its promises of freedom and equality.

In his second book, Inskeep, long-time NPR Morning Edition co-host, award-winning investigative journalist, and author of Instant City, gives events of the 1820s and ‘30s the immediacy of today’s headlines. 1828 saw the elections of Andrew Jackson as president and John Ross as tribal chief of the Cherokee. Once allies, the men clashed violently over land belonging to the Five Civilized Tribes, and in their struggle, which involved civil disobedience by women as well as men, Inskeep sees the groundwork of later social and political movements.

Many people first heard the term “behavioral economics” when Thaler, Chicago professor of behavioral science and economics, and co-author Cass Sunstein published Nudge in 2008. Thaler’s new book retraces the thinking behind that bestselling paradigm shift, showing how he came to understand human miscalculations not as negligible to, but instrumental in, markets and systems, from national budgets to household spending to NFL drafts.

Thaler will be in conversation with David Leonhardt, columnist on politics and economics for The New York Times.

Coyne, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Chicago and a frequent contributor to NPR and The New Republic, made a lucid and passionate presentation of Darwin’s theory in Why Evolution is True, which Newsweek named as one of its “50 Books for our Times” in 2010. Yet half the country’s population still rejects evolution, and in response, Coyne here lays out the case for reason and for the verifiable truth of science, which he counterpoises to the softer, subjective convictions of religion, which, however reassuring, have no place in public policy matters.

With Lydia’s death her seemingly close-knit family pulls apart, and the narrative explores the frustrations of her mother, who gave up her medical studies for her family, the anger and survival strategies of her two surviving siblings, and the challenges each of the Lees have faced in balancing the Chinese and American halves of the family—a stability that had seemed achieved in the blue-eyed, black-haired Lydia, the focus of her parents’ dreams.

 In her highly-anticipated new novel, Judy Blume, the number one New York Times bestselling author of Summer Sisters and of young adult classics such as Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, creates a richly textured and moving story of three generations of families, friends and strangers, whose lives are profoundly changed by unexpected events.

In 1987, Miri Ammerman returns to her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, to attend a commemoration of the worst year of her life. Thirty-five years earlier, when Miri was fifteen, and in love for the first time, a succession of airplanes fell from the sky, leaving a community reeling. Against this backdrop of actual events that Blume experienced in the early 1950s, when airline travel was new and exciting and everyone dreamed of going somewhere, she paints a vivid portrait of a particular time and place—Nat King Cole singing “Unforgettable,” Elizabeth Taylor haircuts, young (and not-so-young) love, explosive friendships, A-bomb hysteria, rumors of Communist threat. And a young journalist who makes his name reporting tragedy. Through it all, one generation reminds another that life goes on.

In the Unlikely Event is vintage Judy Blume, with all the hallmarks of Judy Blume's unparalleled storytelling, and full of memorable characters who cope with loss, remember the good times, and finally, wonder at the joy that keeps them going. , the protagonist looks back to a series of mysterious plane crashes from her childhood. Imagining the lives of three families from the early 1950s, Blume explores the effect of momentous public events on private individuals, and looks closely and affectingly at relationships and loss, ambition and strife, love and parenthood.

Blume will be in conversation with Linda Holmes, host of NPR's entertainment and pop-culture blog, Monkey See.
