In An American Marriage by New York Times bestselling author Tayari Jones, newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. When Roy is arrested and sentenced to 12 years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit, she becomes unmoored and seeks comfort from a childhood friend and best man at their wedding. An Oprah’s Book Club selection, An American Marriage is a stirring love story that delves deep into the hearts and souls of three people who must reckon with the past while moving forward—with hope and pain—into the future.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
In partnership with World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth
Location: Temple Emanu-El
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.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Location: Fellowship Dallas
Melinda Gates’s inspiring debut The Moment of Lift traces her awakening to the link between women’s empowerment and the health of societies. One thing has become increasingly clear to her: if you want to lift a society up, invest in women. Gates introduces us to her heroes in the movement toward equality, offers startling data, and shares moving conversations she’s had with women from all over the world. A personal statement of passionate conviction, she traces her evolution from a partner working behind the scenes to one of the world’s foremost advocates for women, driven by the belief that all lives have equal value, and gender equity is the lever that lifts everything.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Location: First United Methodist Church
Esteemed scientist and historian Jared Diamond presents a brilliant new theory of how and why some nations recover from trauma and others do not. Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis reveals how seven countries have successfully survived defining upheavals in the recent past through a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation, and identifies patterns in the way that these distinct nations recovered from calamity. Looking ahead to the future, Diamond investigates whether the United States and the world are squandering their natural advantages, on a path toward political conflict and decline. Diamond won a Pulitzer Prize for his internationally bestselling book Guns, Germs, and Steel.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Conversation moderated by Lois Kim, Executive Director, Texas Book Festival
Celeste Ng’s novel Little Fires Everywhere is a riveting story that traces the fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother-daughter pair who upend their lives in the idyllic suburban bubble of Shaker Heights, Ohio, where all aspects of life are planned. Presenting two contrasting models of motherhood in Elena Richardson and Mia Warren, Ng sets up the conflict that will drive them apart. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood in contemporary America—and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
