In his new book, FAST CARBS, SLOW CARBS he gives a detailed look at how refined grains such as wheat, corn, and rice became the foundation of our diets; explains the negative physical effects of these fast carbs, especially when combined with saturated fats; offers clear guidelines for discerning what it is we’re really eating; and provides proven ways to cut fast carbs and fats, increase exercise, and improve overall health. In this talk he will look at best practices to stay healthy and informed in these difficult and stressful times, and take questions about both his vital current work with COVID-19 and groundbreaking past research.

An assistant professor at the University of Maryland, Bonner focuses on African American history and the nineteenth-century United States. His illuminating study of citizenship starts from the Constitution’s vague definition of the term and charts the myriad ways Blacks in the ante-bellum free states used that ambiguity to claim certain specific rights and protections. Combining stories and analysis, Bonner traces the connections between these grassroots movements and Reconstruction-era constitutional developments, showing how Black people grappled with the limits of formal legal change and, through these efforts, helped shape the development of citizen status.

Kroenig’s study responds to recent alarm about the nation’s rivalry with China and Russia by arguing against the common wisdom that sees this challenge as likely to disrupt, if not displace, America’s role as global leader. Deputy Director of the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security at the Atlantic Council, associate professor at Georgetown, and author of books including The Logic of American Nuclear Strategy, Kroenig combines social science research, political theory from the Ancients to today, and seven historical case studies of great power rivalry to show that democracies have economic, diplomatic, and military advantages over autocracies—leading him to conclude that the U.S. is in a good position to best China and Russia in a contest for world leadership.

King follows her hugely popular Euphoria with a beautifully observed portrait of the artist as a struggling young woman. Her engaging protagonist is Casey Peabody, age 31 and living in a down-market apartment, waiting tables, and working diligently on her fiction. While Casey refuses to settle for an ordinary domestic life as her friends have, not all her challenges are artistic. She’s mourning the death of her mother, worrying about student loans, and navigating a complicated love life—having ended an affair with a married poet, she rejects a writer languishing in writer’s block, and finds herself attracted to a widowed novelist. And looming in the background is her estrangement from her father and the promising golf career she abandoned when she was fourteen.

For decades, paleontologists have relied on fossils for clues to how life evolved—or failed to. Now, thanks to advances in molecular biology, scientists have added DNA technology to their tool kit. In his fascinating new book, Shubin, the Robert R. Bensley Professor of Organismal Biology and Anatomy at the University of Chicago and Associate Dean of Biological Sciences, shows how these new approaches have revolutionized our understanding of evolution. Writing with the same clarity and narrative energy that made Your Inner Fish and The Universe Within so riveting, Shubin presents the latest discoveries about whole-scale shifts in how animals live and how their bodies are organized and explores questions including whether life on Earth is inevitable or mere chance.

It’s the summer of 1977, and closeted lesbian Tammy Larson is surrounded by homophobia in Orange County, California. Her church and school are conservative, and her aunt organizes for anti-gay campaigns. Tammy finds solace in the diary entries she addresses to gay civil rights activist Harvey Milk. Her world opens up when she starts writing to real-life pen pal Sharon Hawkins, a San Francisco resident with secrets of her own. As American homophobia ratchets up even higher, Sharon and Tammy draw comfort and empowerment from their deepening friendship. Told through the girls’ letters, this well-researched and beautifully written story is an ode to punk music, intergenerational LGBTQ solidarity, and the bravery it takes to be oneself in an often hostile world. Ages 13 and up.

When Joe Mendelson, an idealistic young lawyer, filed a petition in 1999 requesting that the EPA regulate gas emissions from new cars, no one expected him to get very far. But Mendelson persisted, and, joined by twelve states, several cities—including D.C.—and organizations such as the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and the NRDC, eventually brought a successful suit before the Supreme Court. In this compelling account of the 2007 Massachusetts v. EPA decision, Lazarus, a Harvard Law professor who has represented the government and environmental groups in forty Supreme Court cases, tells the inside story of this landmark environmental ruling—one the Trump administration threatens to overturn.

Hollywood Park is a remarkable memoir of a tumultuous life. Mikel Jollett, frontman for indie rock band the Airborne Toxic Event, was born into one of the country’s most infamous cults, and subjected to a childhood filled with poverty, addiction, and emotional abuse. Yet, ultimately, his is a story of fierce love and family loyalty told in a raw, poetic voice that signals the emergence of a uniquely gifted writer. In his raw, poetic, and powerful voice, Jollett portrays a childhood filled with abject poverty, trauma, emotional abuse, delinquency, and the lure of drugs and alcohol. Raised by a clinically depressed, narcissistic mother, tormented by his angry older brother, subjected to the unpredictability of troubled step-fathers, and longing for contact with his father, a former heroin addict and ex-con, Jollett slowly, builds a life that leads him to Stanford University and, eventually, to finding his voice as a writer and musician.

A book signing will follow the event.

Known for his ingenious comic take on everything from vampire stories to French Impressionist painters to Christ’s childhood friend, Moore in his latest literary romp casts Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a murder mystery. The victim is Robin Goodfellow—aka Puck—jester in the court of fairy king Oberon. Pocket of Dog Snogging, fresh from adventures in Fool and Serpent of Venice, is offered the position—if he can catch the killer. But his investigation is hampered by the necessity to lie low: he’s under threat of execution himself, after speaking truth to the powerful Duke who condemned the daughter of his minister to death if she refuses to marry the man her father has chosen for her.
