In the already widely acclaimed debut novel Vladimir by Julia May Jonas, an English professor finds herself grappling with troubling accusations against her husband—and also testing the bounds of her own morality when she develops an obsession with someone new. In bestselling Austin-based author Alex Kiester’s The Truth About Ben and June, the complexities of modern-day marriage are explored, beginning with the up-and-leaving of a wife and new mother. In the Kirkus-starred memoir This Story Will Change: After the Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Crane—a story of personal transformation—a life falls apart after a divorce but rebuilds itself in surprising ways. Join the authors for a rich discussion of their latest books.

Moderator: Jennifer duBois, author of The Spectators, Cartwheel, and A Partial History of Lost Causes and associate professor of English at Texas State University
