In Bookish People, a perfect storm of comedic proportions erupts in a DC bookstore over the course of one soggy summer week--narrated by two very different women and punctuated by political turmoil, a celestial event, and a perpetually broken vacuum cleaner.

Susan Coll is the author of six novels, including Bookish People and The Stager---a New York Times and Chicago Tribune Editor’s Choice. Her third novel, Acceptance, was made into a television movie starring the hilarious Joan Cusack. Her work has appeared in publications including the New York Times Book Review and the Washington Post. She was the Director of Events and Programs at Politics and Prose for five years, and is now part of the events team. She is currently the president of the PEN/Faulkner Foundation.

Coll will be in conversation with Angie Kim, a Korean immigrant, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, and debut author of the international bestseller and Edgar winner Miracle Creek, named a "Best Book of the Year" by Time, The Washington Post, Kirkus, and The Today Show, among others. Kim has written for VogueThe New York Times Book ReviewThe Washington PostGlamour, and numerous literary journals
