Koh was fifteen when her parents, after more than ten years in the U.S., returned to Korea for work. Though she received many letters from her mother, they were in Korean and Koh wouldn’t begin to understand them until years later. In this compelling and lyrical memoir, Koh, a translator, fiction writer, and award-winning author of the poetry collection A Lesser Love, delves into her family’s history, telling the stories of mothers and daughters through four generations. As she reflects on her grandmothers’ experiences and puts them into the wider context of Korean history, she also meditates on the meanings of forgiveness, reconciliation, legacy, and intergenerational trauma.

For most of her life Munemo knew little about her father aside from that he’d suffered from depression and died by suicide when she was five. Years later, she was completely unprepared to discover that he’d written several books featuring interracial porn. In her powerful literary debut, she describes the shock that led her—as the white wife of a Black man from Zimbabwe and mother of two mixed-race sons—to try to deny what her father had done. But with an upsurge of violence against African American men going on all around her, she knew she had to confront this legacy and its wider national context. Koh and Munemo will be in conversation with Jeannie Vanasco, author of Things We Didn’t Talk About When I Was a Girl.

A French journalist, Lançon was gravely wounded in the 2015 terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo. His powerful memoir, an award-winning bestseller in France, confronts this experience neither as a critique of terrorism nor from the perspective of a witness, but as a life-changing event. In the year it took him to return to writing—he’s still a cultural critic at Charlie Hebdo—Lançon focused on healing both physically and emotionally. As he endured grueling treatment for his maimed face while reading and rereading Proust, Mann, Kafka, and others in search of guidance, he also reassessed his relationship to the world, his work, and to love and friendship. In partnership with the French Embassy

In this deeply considered exploration of minimalism, Chayka, a widely published writer who started his career as a visual art critic for Hyperallergic and has since contributed to outlets outlets like n+1, The Paris Review, and New York Magazine, reminds us that “less is more” did not originate with decluttering guru Marie Kondo, but with the likes of architect and furniture designer Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe. Delving into what simplicity meant for 20th-century creators such as Donald Judd, Agnes Martin, John Cage, Julius Eastman, and other ascetics, poets, and philosophers, Chayka moves beyond today’s trends to illuminate the deeper emotional needs at the core of our enduring minimalist desires.

On June 25, 1980, two young women hitchhiking to the Rainbow Gathering festival, were killed in an isolated clearing in nearby Pocahontas County, West Virginia. Thirteen years later, a local farmer was convicted of the murders—only to be released shortly after, when a known serial killer and diagnosed schizophrenic confessed to the crime. In her compelling account of this story, Eisenberg, a widely published writer and reporter, draws on five years of exhaustive research to retrace the investigations, profile key figures involved, and recreate the courtroom scenes, all while showing how the killings haunted—even traumatized—the local community, shaping the lives and fates of people of several generations. Eisenberg will be in conversation with Michelle Delgado, a D.C.-based writer, editor, and researcher.

Schwabsky, a poet, art historian, and art critic for The Nation, has published widely in venues including Artforum, Art in America, and The London Review of Books. While his past books have considered artists across disciplines, from sculptors like Jessica Stockholder to conceptual artists like Mel Bochner, he’s widely considered one of today’s best critics on contemporary painting. Gathering a wide-ranging selection of Schwabsky’s work since 2000, this collection reflects on the practice through considerations of both American artists including Alex Katz, Kerry James Marshall, Nicole Eisenman, and Dana Schutz, and international figures like Bernard Frize, Tal R, and Ha Chonghyun. Schwabsky will be in conversation with Lynne Cooke, Senior Curator, Special Projects in Modern Art, at the National Gallery of Art.

In this analysis of the meaning of blackness in law, the authors study the slave societies of Cuba, Virginia, and Louisiana, drawing on trial records of freedom suits and legislative cases to show that freed people challenged slaveholders’ efforts to equate blackness with slavery, and that the laws of freedom, not slavery, created boundaries between Black and white. De la Fuente, the Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American history and economics and the Director of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at Harvard, and Gross, John B. and Alice R. Sharp Professor of Law and History and co-director of the Center for Law, History, and Culture at the USC Gould School of Law, will be in conversation with Robert Tsai, professor of law at American University.

Coe follows Alice + Freda Forever with a fresh and lively look at George Washington that firmly separates the man from the legend. The host of Audible’s “No Man’s Land,” co-host of “Presidents Are People, Too!” and a consulting producer on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s forthcoming History Channel series on George Washington, Coe views the founder through a feminist lens. Drawing on previously unexamined archival material, she recounts how he was raised by a determined single mother, charts the stubbornness that caused him never to back down, relates the youthful error that caused an international incident, and traces the effects of his failure to face the contradictions of a free nation reliant on slave labor.

Narrated by a sportscaster, Nemens’s character-driven debut novel recounts the on- and off-field activities of the Los Angeles Lions baseball team, their coaches, fans, and hangers-on. Set in 2011, the novel unfolds at the team’s spring training facility in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s murderously hot, but hopes are high, especially for Jason Goodyear, the Lions’ star outfielder. Jason is struggling, however, and he’s not the only one. In a pitch perfect series of interlacing narratives, Nemens, editor of The Paris Review, recounts Jason’s story as well as those of a batting coach trying to stay relevant, a sports agent facing the end of his career, and a woman hoping for one more summer fling. Nemens will be in conversation with Leslie Pietrzyk, author, most recently, of Silver Girl.

The latest collection from the prolific poet, editor, playwright, and author of Words without Borders’ “The City and the Writer” column, draws on Handal’s rich, multi-cultural background—she grew up in Latin America, France, and the Middle East and was educated in Asia, the U.S., and the UK—for a vivid lyrical exploration of today’s restless and divided world. From “Les chemins lumière” and the “Country of Torn Men” to “Takes at the Bowery” and “American Camino,” Handal examines urgent questions of hybrid identities, home, language, citizenship, and freedom.

In her powerful new book, Rogers combines application forms, crowns of sonnets, and sprawling, innovative combinations of words and white space to tell a dystopian tale of the end of life on Earth and the terraforming of Mars. Though the fleeing Earthlings witnessed the ecological destruction their actions inflicted on their old planet and vow to do better on their new one, they fall at once into the same patterns of patriarchal violence and colonialist exploitation. As history begins to repeat itself, Rogers, a widely published poet and essayist who has contributed to Best American Nonrequired Reading and Best American Travel Writing, dramatizes a chilling parable of the American frontier.

Sebree’s powerful debut confronts both the way we see Black women and how history has treated one Black woman in particular: Sally Hemings. Presented as a conversation between Hemings and a twenty-first century narrator, the poems enact a complex temporal dialogue that illuminates several centuries of socio-cultural changes through both a formal diversity employing sonnets, prose poems, and free verse, and the personas’ engagements with historical texts, art, literature, popular culture, and language. In an extraordinary series of poems considering the meanings of “mistress,” Sebree, a poet, editor, and educator who holds an MFA from American University, shows that we generally make narrow use of a word that has associations with strength and authority.

Investigative and White House reporters for The Daily Beast, Markay and Suebsaeng have tirelessly covered the assorted goings-on of the Trump administration, earning angry denunciations from his followers as they’ve uncovered stories including Omarosa’s secret tapes, Giuliani’s plan to foreclose the Russia investigation, and the connections among Jeff Bezos-Lauren Sanchez-Michael Sanchez-AMI-Roger Stone. Their book continues this uncompromising work of exposing the financial and moral degradation of the capital, taking the story back to before Trump’s candidacy and tracing the unprecedented events that have followed through the lens of both key figures and bit players whose roles have not previously been examined.

Yuknavitch, the award-winning author of the novels The Book of Joan, The Small Backs of Children, Dora: A Headcase, and the memoir The Chronology of Water—one of Esquire’s “80 Books Every Person Should Read”—is known for her visceral, passionate writing. The fierce short stories of her first collection are true to form. Focusing on the lives of the marginalized, these powerful pieces illuminate desperation and survival, brutality and beauty. In one, a traumatized eight-year-old transports frozen organs around Eastern Europe. Other tales follow a janitor who creates his own miniature metropolis from discarded objects, a wounded man who pushes through grief to an unexpected end, and a child who lashes out against a group of schoolyard bullies.

Nearly synonymous with the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman (c. 1820-1913) helped bring hundreds of slaves to freedom. She also spied for the Union Army and led an armed expedition during the Civil War, then worked for women’s suffrage and advocated for the elderly. In this vivid and fresh biography, Dunbar, Charles and Mary Beard Professor of History at Rutgers and author of the Frederick Douglass Book Award-winner Never Caught, celebrates the life and achievements of one of the nation’s extraordinary women through a combination of scholarship and dynamic graphics ranging from sidebars and illuminating timelines to illustrations and photos—many of them new. Dunbar will be in conversation with Dolen Perkins-Valdez, author of Wench.

While many Westerners knew little of Russia’s punk scene until Pussy Riot’s arrival on the global stage in 2012, as Herbert reports in this dynamic oral history, punk first gained a foothold in the Soviet Union in 1978. Arriving with black market vinyl and fanzines, the music soon fostered a youth movement that managed to stay one step ahead of the secret police. Profiling the key figures involved, Herbert, a research fellow at Brandeis, follows the music from early bands like Avtomaticheskie Udovletvoriteli and Naïve to later ones such as Distress, Ricochet, and the anti-fascist Proverochnaia Lineika and chronicles punk’s spread from Moscow and St. Petersburg to provincial cities.

Awarded the 2016 Deborah Slosberg Memorial Award for Fiction, Bump has contributed both fiction and nonfiction to venues including Slam magazine, the Huffington Post, and Springhouse Journal. Writing with style and bravado, in his first novel he explores issues of race, identity, social injustice, and family through the story of Claude McKay Love. A young Black man from the South Side of Chicago, Love was raised by his grandmother, who hoped to see him carry on the struggle for civil rights. But after a riot tears apart his community, Love escapes for college and a new life—only to discover that the place and people who shaped him are not so easily left behind.

A senior editor of Electric Literature and a staff writer at Literary Hub, Taylor is known as a powerful essayist for the pieces he’s published in The New Yorker online, Catapult, Out magazine, and Roxane Gay’s anthology, Not That Bad. In his eagerly awaited debut novel, he turns his acute understanding of human emotions to the story of Wallace, an introverted young Black Southern man in a Midwest college. Though Wallace has friends, he keeps his distance, navigating a deep loneliness that’s tied to his sense of self-preservation. Then a series of confrontations with colleagues and an unsettling encounter with a young straight man threaten to overturn his precarious stability.

In her first book, Cote draws on her academic interest in Victorian literature and her professional experience as a former contributing writer at Jezebel to explore how patriarchal culture from the nineteenth century to the present has stifled and cramped women’s lives. Looking at how women have been demonized for “excessive” behavior—whether talking too much, laughing too loud, taking up too much space, or expressing too much desire—Cote profiles transgressive figures ranging from Jane Eyre and Lizzie Bennet to Lana Del Ray and Britney Spears. As she did in her Los Angeles Review of Books web site essay on Taylor Swift and Victorian female friendship, Cote offers a truly revelatory account of female intensity. Cote will be in conversation with Caitlin Gibson, a Washington Post feature writer.
