Note: Due to an unforeseen circumstance, author A. M. Homes will no longer be available to attend this session.


Sharp political satire can be found in bestselling author A. M. Homes’s latest novel, The Unfolding, in which a family’s dynamic begins changing after the 2008 election, and, more broadly, a rift in America’s definition of identity, democracy, and freedom begins to surface. In Pulitzer Prize finalist Jonathan Dee’s Sugar Street, a man aims to escape his former life of privilege to look instead for blameless existence, but discovers alongside his new politically divided working-class neighbors that his escape isn’t as simple as planned.
