Chris Bohjalian & Katie Kitamura

Wednesday, February 15, 7:30 p.m.

New York Times bestselling author Chris Bohjalian returns with a suspenseful story about a family’s lies, loss, and buried desire. In his latest novel, Sleepwalker, wife and mother Annalee vanishes from her bed one night. The mystery surrounding her disappearance becomes increasingly complicated, conjuring the strange and mysterious world of parasomnia, a place somewhere between dreaming and wakefulness. Katie Kitamura‘s novel A Separation is a mesmerizing, psychologically taut story about secrecy, intimacy and infidelity, and the gulf that divides a marriage. Kitamura is being hailed as a major talent by Karl Ove Knausgaard and many other acclaimed authors; Rivka Galchen says “Kitamura combines the calm complexity of Joseph Conrad with the pacing and reveal of Patricia Highsmith.”

Jessi Klein

Saturday, February 25, 7:30 p.m.

Jessi Klein is the Emmy and Peabody award–winning head writer and executive producer of Comedy Central’s critically acclaimed series Inside Amy Schumer. Growing up gawkish and a late bloomer, Jessi Klein never identified with the conventional standards of modern femininity. Instead she viewed herself as a tomboy who found her voice through comedy. In her outrageously funny and unapologetically candid breakout book, You’ll Grow Out of It, Klein compiles a perceptive collection of confessional essays that offer readers a relatable glimpse into exactly what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
