PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Reyna Grande’s memoir A Dream Called Home is an inspiring account of her quest to find her place in America as a first generation Latina university student and aspiring writer determined to build a new life for her family. At 9 years old, Grande walked across the US-Mexico border in search of her parents, who left her behind years ago in pursuit of a better life. By daring to pursue her dreams of an education and a writing career, Grande builds the one thing she has always longed for: a home that would endure.
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. This event is FREE for students and Educators.

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.

In Susan Choi’s new novel Trust Exercise, what happens in one highly competitive performing arts high school reverberates through lives—and across generations. 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.

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.
