Award-winning, New York Times bestselling, The New Yorker  writer, ADAM GOPNIK, launches his new book, A THOUSAND SMALL SANITIES: THE MORAL ADVENTURE OF LIBERALISM, with us. Join us for Adam’s first event to celebrate his new book.
Acclaimed, bestselling writer, JOHN BURNHAM SCHWARTZ, reads from his new novel, THE RED DAUGHTER. In one of the most momentous events of the Cold War, Svetlana Alliluyeva, the only daughter of the infamous Soviet despot Joseph Stalin, abruptly abandoned her life in Moscow in 1967, arriving in New York to throngs of reporters and a nation hungry to hear her story. By her side is Peter Horvath, a young lawyer sent by the CIA to smuggle Svetlana into America. John Burnham Schwartz’s father was the young lawyer who escorted Svetlana Alliluyeva. Drawing upon private papers and years of extensive research, Schwartz imaginatively re-creates the story of an extraordinary, troubled woman’s search for a new life and a place to belong, in the powerful, evocative prose that has made him an acclaimed author of literary and historical fiction. “A fine and generous portrait of Stalin’s daughter – a difficult, complicated, and deeply sympathetic woman. I read his novel in a single great draught. The Red Daughter is a lustrous book.” – Lauren Groff
Director/producer/writer & One of the “30 Under 30” most influential people in media by Forbes, ERIN LEE CARR, reads from her debut memoir, ALL THAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND. “Erin Lee Carr’s father, David, was an inimitable force in American journalism and a complex, boundlessly fascinating figure in her life. But what we learn in All That You Leave Behind is that Erin is just as much of an original as the man who raised her, and her sharp but tender-hearted debut memoir is perfect evidence of that. This book is wonderful.” – Lena Dunham

Award-winning, New York Times bestselling journalist and author, GEORGE PACKER, reads from his new book, OUR MAN: RICHARD HOLBROOK AND THE END OF THE AMERICAN CENTURY. From the award-winning author of The Unwinding – the vividly told saga of the ambition, idealism, and hubris of one of the most legendary and complicated figures in recent American history, set amid the rise and fall of U.S. power from Vietnam to Afghanistan. “[Packer is] among the best nonfiction writers in America.” – Edward Luce, Financial Times.
Award-winning,  New York Times bestselling author of Bee Season, MYLA GOLDBERG reads from her new novel, FEAST YOUR EYES. “Feast Your Eyes reminded me of other unlikely adventure stories. Only here the human constraints are still more challenging: making art as a single mother in a twentieth century dominated and distorted by men. This is an unflinching, deeply moving portrait of the artist, and a bravura performance in and of itself. I loved this book.” – Joshua Ferris, author of Then We Came to the End and To Rise Again at a Decent Hour.
