Erik Larson, master of narrative nonfiction, delivers The Splendid and the Vile, a compelling portrait of Winston Churchill and London during the Blitz. Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people "the art of being fearless." Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year, transporting readers to a time of true leadership, when-in the face of unrelenting horror-Churchill's eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together. Larson's bestselling books include The Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Beasts.

In converstion with Angela Haupt
Swedish author Frederik Backman's whimsical, oddball humor and heart-rending turns resist the typical genre mold, yet with 12 million copies sold globally, his numerous works resonate widely.


Anxious People involves a failed bank robber who takes hostage a disparate group of people at an open house. As the pressure mounts, the eight strangers slowly begin opening up to one another and reveal long-hidden truths. The novel grapples with both mental health and parenting, as well as the enduring power of friendship, forgiveness, and hope-the things that save us, even in the most anxious times.

In partnership with Dallas Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation
Addressing the topic of whiteness and white supremacy through an array of essays, poems, and visuals, award-winning poet and MacArthur Genius, Claudia Rankine in her new book Just Us: An American Conversation explores a series of real encounters with friends and strangers, each disrupting the false comfort of spaces where our public and private lives intersect, and urges us to forge humane pathways through this moment of division.


"Claudia Rankine ... is one of our essential thinkers about race, difference, politics, and the United States of America. ... Just Us asks difficult questions and begins necessary conversations."-Viet Thanh Nguyen, author

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In conversation with Jim Falk, President and CEO of the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth
Novelist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Laila Lalami utilizes her compelling narrative style to describe her own path to U.S. citizenship alongside the larger history of American law and society in her new nonfiction work Conditional Citizens: On Belonging in America. Drawing on her personal identity as "an immigrant, a woman, an Arab, and a Muslim," Lalami describes how becoming a U.S. citizen does not necessarily mean becoming "an equal member of the American family."

Join us for a wide-ranging conversation about both Lalami's fiction and nonfiction works with the author who The Washington Post calls "one of our most important critics of the American character."
