Susan Choi & Nell Freudenberger

Sunday, April 14, 3:00 p.m.

In Susan Choi’s new novel Trust Exercise, what happens in one highly competitive performing arts high school reverberates through lives—and across generations. Captivating, tender, and surprising, Trust Exercise will incite heated conversations about fiction and truth, friendships and loyalties, and the wise capacities of adolescents and the powers and responsibilities of adults. Lost and Wanted by Nell Freudenberger is a suspenseful exploration of female friendship, love, and parenthood bonds. Two friends, once on similar academic career paths in science, drifted apart after one abandons a potentially brilliant career in academia, in part because of unwanted attention from a star professor. Both authors are recipients of Guggenheim Fellowships and PEN awards.

Rick Bragg & Helen Ellis

Wednesday, April 17, 7:30 p.m.

In The Best Cook in the World: Tales from My Momma’s Table, Rick Bragg preserves his southern heritage by telling the stories that framed his mother’s cooking and education, from childhood to old age. This New York Times bestseller includes 74 mouthwatering Bragg family recipes for classic southern dishes in a delectable, rollicking food memoir, cookbook, and loving tribute to a region, a vanishing history, a family, and especially, to his mother. Helen Ellis, the bestselling author of American Housewife, is back with a fiercely funny collection of essays on marriage and manners, thank-you notes and three-ways, and the Calgon-scented, onion-dipped, monogrammed art of living as a Southern Lady. Ann Pachett loved Southern Lady Code saying, “As a Southern Lady myself, I cannot only confirm the veracity of the facts, I can tell you the book made me laugh like a hyena.”
