Come hear three authors tell us how they came to write their new books:

  • The Stationery Shop, a novel by Marjan Kamali. Born in Turkey to Iranian parents, Kamali spent her childhood in Kenya, Germany, Turkey, Iran and the United States. She studied English Literature at UC Berkeley and received her MBA from Columbia University and her MFA from New York University. Her work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and published in two anthologies, and an excerpt from The Stationery Shop was published in Solstice Literary Magazine and nominated for a Pushcart Prize.  The Stationery Shop has also been selected as an Indie Next Pick and as an Amazon Best Book of the Month.

  • The Shortest Day, by Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper, a poem first written for the Christmas Revels, and illustrated by Caldecott Honoree Carson Ellis.

  • In Hoffa's Shadow: A Stepfather, a Disappearance in Detroit, and My Search for the Truth by Jack Goldsmith. Harvard Law professor and former assistant attorney general Goldsmith reunites with his estranged stepfather, a one-time Jimmy Hoffa associate, to find out more about the labor leader and his famously unexplained 1975 disappearance.
