In this important and unsettling collection of thirteen testimonials by people who have been targets of the bigotry, bullying, threats, and violence that have surged since 2016, Sethi, an activist and human rights lawyer, forces us to see the real impact of this culture of hatred. The change in the nation’s response to diversity is undeniable; Asmaa Albukaie, a migrant from Syria, found a welcoming community in Idaho in 2014, but now her adopted home is openly hostile and she fears for her safety. Here in D.C., Taylor Dumpson, an African-American woman, was greeted by nooses on her first day as American University’s student body president. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, in August 2016 Khalid Jabara was murdered by a man who had harassed and threatened him and his family because they were Arab American. Telling their stories in their own words, these survivors actively resist the forces of white supremacy that would silence them, and their courage is a call to action to all of us to combat hate.

Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915-2011), author of beloved classics of travel writing such as A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water, was knighted for his services to literature. He was so gifted a writer that just two hundred of his letters can give the full flavor of the man, his life, and his times. Spanning almost seventy years, these letters, written to correspondents including Deborah Devonshire, Nancy Mitford, Lawrence Durrell, Diana Cooper, and Fermor’s lifelong companion, Joan Rayner, tell surprising stories, recount adventures, and convey Fermor’s irrepressible exuberance. Part scrapbook, part journal, and part biography, this volume is the only extensive selection of Fermor’s letters to date. It was edited by Adam Sisman, whose work includes the authorized biography of John Le Carré and the National Book Critics Circle award-winner Boswell's Presumptuous Task.

Sam Munson with Dog Symphony

Munson follows up The November Criminals, a thriller set in his hometown of D.C., with this darkly comic and surreal novel. The narrative follows the endearing Boris Leonidovich, an American academic specializing in the history of prison architecture, as he arrives in Buenos Aires for a conference. In addition to presenting a paper on Moscow's Butyrka prison, his agenda includes a reunion with his beloved, Ana. But the two miss each other. Then Boris locks himself out of his room. He gets lost, and with night coming on, feels increasingly disoriented and threatened.

Lara Vergnaud with Ahmed Bouanani’s The Hospital

Ahmed Bouanani (1938-2011) was a Moroccan writer, poet, illustrator, and film director, best known for the 1979 film The Mirage. He wrote this hallucinatory novel in 1989, but it lapsed into obscurity until it was republished in France in 2012. Now considered a modern Moroccan classic, the book blends history, Islamic folklore, and nightmare for a Kafkaesque portrayal of a tubercular ward. It’s available in English for the first time, translated by D.C.-based Lara Vergnaud, whose English rendition of Zahia Rahmani's France, Story of a Childhood, was nominated for the 2017 National Translation Award.

The Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn has missed out on much of the economic and social improvement New York City has enjoyed in recent years. But though impoverished and beset by gangs, the community has the Mo Better Jaguars, the football team that continues to be a source of pride. Erstwhile regional champions, the Jaguars give Brownsville’s kids an alternative to street violence as well as a chance to bond with their peers and valuable lessons in teamwork, manhood, and handling disappointment. Samaha, an award-winning criminal justice reporter at BuzzFeed, spent several years with the team, and his compelling narrative follows the players, their parents, and coaches, showing us how football literally changes the playing field for these inner-city kids.

A writer, marketer, and producer and an architectural designer, respectively, Melissa and Chris Bruntlett are the founders of Modacity, a communications firm dedicated to “inspiring healthier, happier, simpler forms of mobility through words, photography, and film.” Looking specifically at how bicycles can meet these objectives, the authors focus on the Netherlands, the only country where bikes outnumber people. Drawing on interviews with planners and their own experiences cycling in five Dutch cities, the authors detail the challenges involved in integrating the bike into everyday life. They also tour several North American cities to show how metropolises including Atlanta, Seattle, and Vancouver are adapting Dutch ideas into their own transportation systems.

Small, an award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, won legions of new fans with his stunning graphic memoir, Stitches. This eagerly-awaited graphic novel is a book of few words, powerful emotions, and spliced images that speak volumes. The narrative is set in the 1950s and follows thirteen-year-old Russell Pruitt as he struggles to survive a harrowing adolescence. Abandoned by his mother, he sets out on his own to find his father, who is somewhere in California. He ends up in Marshfield, a derelict town menaced by a sadistic animal killer where he fends off his alcoholic father at home and dodges a gang of bullies at school. By the time he’s finally rescued by a Chinese immigrant couple, Russel can no longer tell who he can trust.

Anagnorisis: the point in the plot, especially of a tragedy, at which the protagonist…discovers the true nature of his or her own situation. For Dargan, the truth of being a Black man in today’s United States involves an ongoing stream of black deaths, climate change, gentrification, and a government that cares little about social justice. In his fifth collection of poems, Dargan, winner of both the Cave Canem Poetry Prize and the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award and an associate professor of literature and director of creative writing at American University, powerfully articulates the nature of the tragedy underway, even as he stays determined to survive and write. Dargan will be in conversation with Tess Taylor, NPR’s All Things Considered poetry critic and the author of two books of poetry.

Widely hailed when it appeared a year ago, Foer’s critique of big tech looks closely at four Silicon Valley giants, scrutinizing the gap between what they promise and what they are actually doing. While Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon claim to be champions of individuality and pluralism, their extensive data collection capabilities and use of algorithms threaten privacy and promote conformity. If allowed to proceed, Foer warns, they will hollow out our inner lives, imperil liberal democracy, and turn us into an automated, homogenized society. Foer, national correspondent for The Atlantic, puts these new monopolists in the context of the history of technology and also draws on his own experience at the New Republic, which was acquired by a Facebook cofounder and targeted for rebranding as a “digital media company.”

Kwon’s eagerly-awaited debut novel has the intensity of a thriller and the emotional power of a complicated love story. The narrative focuses on Will and Phoebe, two students who fall for each other during their first weeks at Edwards University. Will has transferred from a Bible college and is struggling to leave behind his fundamentalist background. Phoebe is guilt-ridden over the death of her mother and increasingly drawn to an extremist cult—and to its charismatic leader, who has ties to North Korea and to Phoebe’s family. Will can only watch as her attraction becomes obsession, and when she disappears in the wake of the group’s shocking act of violence, he is left to confront his own guilt. Kwon will be in conversation with Nicole Chung, editor-in-chief of Catapult magazine, former managing editor of The Toast, and author of the forthcoming memoir All You Can Ever Know.
