Now in its 48th year,
Books on Review
presents some of today's most notable authors:
VANESSA HUA, author of Forbidden City
“In . . . her masterful new novel , Hua reflects that ‘fiction flourishes where the official record ends.’ Her novel bears this out: Hua dares to pen the story of the women who fought, sacrificed and endured during China’s Cultural Revolution. . . . .”—The Washington Post
ANTHONY MARRA, author of Mercury Pictures Presents
The epic tale of a brilliant woman who must reinvent herself to survive, moving from Mussolini’s Italy to 1940s Los Angeles—a timeless story of love, deceit, and sacrifice from the award-winning author of A Constellation of Vital Phenomena.
JAVIER ZAMORA, author of Solito
A memoir as gripping as it is moving, Zamora provides an immediate and intimate account not only of a treacherous and near-impossible journey, but also of the miraculous kindness and love delivered at the most unexpected moments. And it’s also the story of millions of others who had no choice but to leave home.
ADRIAN MILLER, author of Black Smoke: African Americans & the United States of Barbecue
Prepared in one region or another, in the South and beyond, barbecue is one of the nation's most distinctive culinary arts. Miller chronicles how Black barbecuers, pitmasters, and restauranteurs helped develop this cornerstone of American foodways and how they are coming into their own.
This is a virtual event that is open to all.
