Margaret Atwood's
novel The Testaments, the brilliant sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, answers questions that have tantalized readers for decades. When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her-freedom, prison, or death. The Testaments picks up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.
"Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in." -Margaret Atwood

Kristin Hannah in conversation with author Kathleen Kent
In her new novel The Great Alone, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kristin Hannah presents an unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience. In the near-isolated wilderness of Alaska, a desperate family seeks a new beginning, only to find that their harsh environment is less threatening than the erratic behavior found in human nature. Called "magical" and "authentic" by Kirkus Review, The Great Alone explores love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature. Hannah has authored more than 20 novels, including The Nightingale, which has been published in 43 languages and is currently in movie production at TriStar Pictures.

A uniquely visionary witness whose life has spanned seemingly unbridgeable divides, Gerald reflects on his experiences in Dallas, Yale, Washington, and beyond. He illustrates how the world crushes those who live at its margins, how the elite perpetuate the salvation stories that keep others from rising, and most painfully, how his own ascension is part of the scheme. There Will Be No Miracles Here was named a "Best Book of 2018" by NPR and The New York Times, and was a PBS Newshour-New York Times Book Club Pick.

Benjamin Moser in conversation with author Ben Fountain

In Sontag: Her Life and Work, Ben Moser. delves into the life of one of the most emblematic voices of the 20th century: Susan Sontag-novelist, activist, essayist, playwright, filmmaker, and one of the most influential critics of her generation. Sontag left a legacy of writing-on art and politics, feminism and homosexuality, celebrity and style, and more. Drawing from the writer's restricted archives and interviews with those who have remained silent on her until now (including Annie Leibovitz), Sontag crafts a definitive portrait of the writer and explores the insecurity behind her formidable public face. Moser was a finalist for the National Book Critics' Circle award and a recipient of the 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship.

When Dallas high society teen Daniel Matheson and his family arrive in Madrid, photography-and fate-introduce him to Ana, whose family's obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War. While his father conducts business with Franco, Daniel makes it his mission to bring to light the atrocities the world has ignored.

Peggy Wallace Kennedy, seen as the "symbol of racial reconciliation" (Washington Post), is the daughter of one of America's most virulent segregationists, former governor of Alabama and presidential candidate George Wallace, who ultimately renounced his views at the end of his life. Wallace Kennedy's powerful memoir The Broken Road is both timely and timeless and speaks to change, atonement, activism, and racial healing. A Life of My Own follows Donna Wilhelm's path from a lonely child in an immigrant boarding house to corporate wife and mother, to middle-aged divorcee, and finally her reinvention into a philanthropist, arts advocate, and humanitarian. This evocative memoir reveals her unique upbringing, diverse work history, family challenges and journey of personal growth with unbridled honesty and will inspire others to take ownership of their stories.
