PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
At this event, two masters of the art of the novel and short stories will discuss their creative process and common themes in their work. Lauren Groff’s Fates and Furies is a New York Times–bestselling novel about love, art, power, and perception—a portrait of a creative partnership between a young, glamorous couple, madly in love and destined for greatness. Although their marriage is the envy of their friends, through riveting twists we learn that the key to its success relies on keeping secrets. Fates and Furies was a finalist for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Prize, and the Kirkus Prize.
In British author Tessa Hadley’s latest novel, Late in the Day, the 30-year bond between a quartet of close friends comes unglued when one of them dies unexpectedly; old entanglements and grievances rise from the past, and love and sorrow give way to anger and bitterness. In exploring the complex webs at the center of our most intimate relationships, the Washington Post says Hadley “crystallizes the atmosphere of ordinary life in prose somehow miraculous and natural.”

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2016, through DNA analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. In one moment, her entire history crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness, and secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It highlights Shapiro’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, which had been scrupulously hidden from her for more than 50 years, during which time she wrote brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Madeleine K. Albright’s #1 New York Times bestseller Fascism: A Warning is a personal and urgent examination of Fascism in the 20th century and how its legacy shapes today’s world. This book — relevant to all times — has been written by someone who has not only studied history but helped to shape it. Albright draws on her experiences as a child in war-torn Europe and her distinguished career as a diplomat to present a call to arms that teaches us the lessons we must understand to prevent repeating the tragic errors of the past.
Madeleine Albright served as the 64th secretary of state of the United States—the first woman to serve in that role. In 2012 she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama. She will appear in conversation with Jim Falk, President and CEO of the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth.

Valeria Luiselli’s novel Lost Children Archive humanizes the pressing and polarizing issue of immigration. As a family travels across America on a summer road trip, there is news on the radio about an “immigration crisis”: thousands of kids trying to cross the border into the United States, but getting detained—or lost in the desert along the way. As they drive, we sense that the family is on the brink of a crisis of its own. This powerful novel takes us deep into the lives of one remarkable family as it probes the nature of justice and equality today.

Mary Norris, the beloved “Comma Queen” of The New Yorker’s copy department, returns with a witty, wise, and charming book about language, love, and the wine-dark sea of Greece. Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen is an unforgettable account of both her life-long love affair with words and her solo adventures to the land of ouzo and olive trees.

Captivating, tender, and surprising, Trust Exercise will incite heated conversations about fiction and truth, friendships and loyalties, and the wise capacities of adolescents and the powers and responsibilities of adults. Lost and Wanted by Nell Freudenberger is a suspenseful exploration of female friendship, love, and parenthood bonds. Two friends, once on similar academic career paths in science, drifted apart after one abandons a potentially brilliant career in academia, in part because of unwanted attention from a star professor. Both authors are recipients of Guggenheim Fellowships and PEN awards.

The Second Mountain by New York Times columnist David Brooks is a thought-provoking commentary on the rampant individualism that has become the defining ethos of our culture. Brooks explores what it means to lead a meaningful life, suggesting that the first mountain an individual faces is about building up the ego, defining the self, and striving for success; the second mountain is about shedding the ego, planting yourself amid those who need, and giving yourself away. Brooks has spent more than five years thinking about how to give life meaning after worldly success failed to fulfill. This new book is the product of his personal quest for a joyful life.
