Waldman made her literary debut with The Submission, a bestseller that explored national divisions by imagining what would happen if a Muslim-American won a contest to design a 9/11 memorial. In her equally rich and thought-provoking new novel, she draws on her experience as former New York Times South Asia bureau chief to investigate the moral complexities of good intentions. The narrative follows Parveen Shamsa who, inspired by the work of an American humanitarian, travels to Afghanistan to help in a rural clinic. Once there, she finds the reality is nothing like the success story she read about, and she struggles to reconcile the two sides of her Afghan-American heritage.

Hoberman’s new book follows The Dream Life and An Army of Phantoms to conclude his Found Illusions Trilogy with a retrospective of the Reagan years as seen through the films of the era. Tracking the synergy between American politics and pop culture, Hoberman looks at Reagan in the context of cinematic peers such as Indiana Jones and John Rambo, illuminates how films like Earthquake commented on the fading Watergate scandal, and tracks the complex intersections of events such as the Iran-Contra scandal and the Strategic Defense Initiative with films like Star Wars, Ghostbusters, and Blue Velvet. Hoberman will be in conversation with Glenn Frankel, Pulitzer-winning journalist for The Washington Post and author most recently of High Noon.

Former publisher at MysteriousPress.com and author of the Ash McKenna crime series, Hart combines the pacing and hairpin turns of a thriller with the high-tech details of science-fiction for this taut novel set in a future world all too plausibly like our own. Billing itself as the answer to every economic, environmental, and social ill, Cloud houses and employs millions. Glad for the security, people put up with surveillance, mandatory overtime, and worse. But two employees—one of whom is a corporate spy—are getting fed up. As secrets start to spill, the stakes rise for everyone. Hart will be in conversation with James Grady, author of the iconic Condor espionage series.

Alaine Beauparlant has plans: once high school ends, she’s leaving Miami to study journalism at Columbia. But before graduation, her world unravels. Her famous journalist mother has a meltdown on TV, and Alaine gets suspended. She is sent off to Haiti to join her tati and her recovering mother. For the first time, Alaine experiences the country in which her parents grew up. She also comes to know her estranged mother, ultimately learning the shocking truth about her public breakdown. The Moulite sisters’ combined voice, emphasized by the novel’s mixed-media format, crackles with independence and spark, vivifying this magical realist story, which pays homage both to a country often disregarded and to the joys of exploring one’s roots. In conversation with Elizabeth Acevedo, award-winning author of The Poet X and With the Fire on High, and Karine Jean-Pierre, Haitian-American political campaign organizer, Chief Public Affairs Officer at Move On and lecturer in international and public affairs at Columbia University. Ages 14 and up

The author of Gods and Kings and Deluxe, Thomas has covered fashion and culture for a wide range of publications since beginning her career with the Washington Post’s Style section in 1988. Her new book is a detailed overview of the global fashion industry, a sector that employs one-sixth of the world’s population, produces 80 billion garments a year, and has steadily increased fashion’s historical exploitation of labor, the environment, and intellectual property. But globalization and fast fashion have also spurred a movement to reinvent the industry on a smaller, more humane scale, and Thomas introduces the visionaries who are reclaiming traditional craft, launching sustainable technologies such as printing 3-D clothes, recycling fabric, and developing clean-denim processing—and creating better fashion, to boot.

Hailed by The New York Times as one of a “New Vanguard” of fifteen women writers who are shaping fiction today, Zink burst onto the literary scene with the utterly unique The Wallcreeper, followed by Mislaid and Nicotine. Her new novel, written with Zink’s signature sharpness, humor, and warmth, follows the nation’s cultural and political zeitgeist from the 1990s to today through the lives of three punk rockers. Pam, Daniel, and Joe break up their (at best mediocre) group when Joe records a hit single, but the three remain friends. Meanwhile, Pam and Daniel raise their daughter Flora who, after 9/11, becomes an environmental activist working on the front lines of a new, unforeseen threat.

One of our top polling experts, Greenberg follows his America Ascendant, in which he illuminated the Republican Party’s decades-long fight against a secular and diverse “New America,” with an update of that cultural war based on trends from the 2016 and 2018 elections. Drawing on results from his focus groups and polls, Greenberg argues that the GOP is vulnerable on several fronts, mainly from the growing ranks of millennials and immigrants, and predicts that the losses the Party suffered in 2018 will continue in 2020. To take advantage of Trump’s alienation of blue-collar voters, however, he argues Democrats must develop robust programs for providing American workers with a level playing field.

Drawing comparisons to fierce young fiction talents like Otessa Moshfegh and Carmen Maria Machado, Parsons writes with fearlessness and uncanny insight about the darker regions of the human psyche. Set in Texas, the stories of her eagerly awaited first collection explore lives driven to extremes—whether by compulsions, longing, addiction, or the clash between dreams and real life. Ranging from highways to homes to pay-by-the-hour motels, this fiction teems with unforgettable characters—not least of which is Texas itself—and even more unforgettable language. Parsons will be in conversation with Mark Doten, editor for Soho Press and author of Trump Sky Alpha.

Before leading the Third Reich, Hitler was an artist, and he gained control over Germany as much through cultural tyranny as by brute force, confiscating and destroying thousands of works by “degenerate” artists. Only a fraction of these pieces have been recovered, but in 2013 German officials discovered a cache of some 1,290 works by Chagall, Picasso, Matisse, Otto Dix, and others in the apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt, son of an art dealer who had helped Hitler “purify” German art. Drawing on original research in German archives along with her work as the former chief European art reporter for the Wall Street Journal, Lane traces the fate of art and artists under the Nazi regime.

A leading expert on artificial intelligence, Marcus is former CEO and founder of the machine learning startup Geometric Intelligence and now CEO and founder of Robust AI. Building on his influential New York Times op-ed, “A.I. Is Harder Than You Think,” co-written with Ernest Davis, Marcus shows that while building robots that can win chess games may seem impressive, such achievements—occurring in closed systems with fixed sets of rules—fall short of operating at human levels of cognition in a complex world. Marcus outlines what we need to do to realize the full potential of this technology, including ways to create an AI we can trust—not one we ought to fear will supersede human capabilities.

A fast-rising star in crime fiction, Locke won the Edgar, Anthony, and Dagger Awards for Best Novel with Bluebird, Bluebird, the first in a series featuring Darren Matthews, a Black Texas Ranger. Her follow up returns to east Texas where Matthews confronts lingering questions—both personal and professional—from his previous case and searches for a missing nine-year-old. The boy is the son of white supremacists, and when the clues lead Matthews to a small lakeside community thriving on revived nostalgia for the ante-bellum South, Matthews is plunged into a dangerous racially-charged situation, expertly depicted with Locke's characteristically textured and tense writing.

Long-listed for the 2019 Booker Prize, Irish fiction sensation Barry’s latest novel takes place in a ferry terminal on the coast of Spain, where Maurice Hearne and Charlie Redmond, a pair of aging drug smugglers, are waiting for a woman named Dilly who may or may not be Maurice’s estranged daughter. As their wait becomes a night-long vigil, the pair look back over the course of their lives, trading stories of romance, adventure, and betrayal. Writing with the signature wry humor and irrepressible wit from his award-winning Beatlebone and City of Bohane, Barry makes each phrase sing, which becomes all the more apparent in his inimitable live readings.

Addressed to her two sons, Perry’s book is a profound and personal reflection on race and the challenges for both Black parents and children in a world that increasingly denies Black boys their humanity. Writing in the vein of James Baldwin and Ta-Nehisi Coates, Perry, Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton and author of books including Looking for Lorraine, is open and honest about the realities of raising Black boys; while voicing her fears and frustrations, she nonetheless exhorts the next generation to see the beauty and possibility in life, especially by looking to the Black tradition for hope, wisdom, and strength.

Del Amo is one of France’s most exciting young writers as well as a prominent voice for animal rights, and his first novel to appear in English is an impassioned epic in the naturalistic vein of Zola. Tracing a century of socio-cultural change through the lives of a farming family in southwestern France, the novel opens in 1898 in Puy-Larroque where Éléonore lives with her parents and cousin on a farm that lacks running water. But World War I marks the end of pastoral traditions both good and bad, and by the time Éléonore assumes the role of matriarch in the 1980s, her family is running a large efficient factory farm, with all the inhumanity that entails. In partnership with the French Embassy.
