PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
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.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Pico Iyer's memoir Autumn Light: Season of Fire and Farewells is a moving meditation on impermanence, mortality, and grief that explores Japanese history and culture. Drawn back to Japan by the sudden death of his father-in-law, Iyer grapples with the question we all have to live with: how to hold on to the things we love, even though we know that we-and they-are dying. An acclaimed travel writer and essayist for Time since 1982, Iyer has written two novels and eight works of nonfiction, and has contributed to the New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, The New Yorker, and more than 200 other publications.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Ruta Sepetys is an internationally acclaimed, #1 New York Times bestselling author of historical fiction. The New York Times Book Review hailed her as a "champion of the interstitial people so often ignored-whole populations lost in the cracks of history." Her newest novel, The Fountains of Silence, is an epic, heart-wrenching story about identity, unforgettable love, repercussions of war, and the hidden violence of silence, inspired by the true postwar struggles of Spain. 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.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In conversation with author Ben Fountain

After becoming a father at the age of 58, National Book Award-winning novelist Tim O'Brien realized that when his two young sons would begin to know him, they would know an old man. He resolved to give them what he wished his own father had given him-a few scraps of paper signed "Love, Dad." For the next 15 years, the author talked to his sons on paper, as if they were adults, imagining what they might want to hear from a father who was no longer among the living. The result is Dad's Maybe Book, in which O'Brien wisdom from a life in letters, lessons learned in wartime, and the challenges, humor, and rewards of raising two sons.

Peggy Wallace Kennedy & Donna Wilhelm in conversation with Krys Boyd of KERA

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.
