Hillary Jordan’s debut novel, "Mudbound", received the 2006 Bellwether Prize for Fiction, a prize founded by Barbara Kingsolver to reward books of conscience, social responsibility, and literary merit, as well as the 2009 Alex Award from the American Library Association. Released to instant critical acclaim, "Mudbound" was the NAIBA (New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association) Fiction Book of the Year, a Borders Original Voices selection, a Book Sense pick, and one of twelve New Voices of 2008 chosen by Waterstone’s UK. It was called a “powerful firestorm of a first novel” by Barnes & Noble Discover Pick, and Publishers Weekly wrote that Mudbound “carries echoes of "As I Lay Dying", hailing the book as “a superbly rendered depiction of the fury and terror wrought by racism.” Ms. Jordan grew up in Texas and Oklahoma. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia University, and a BA in English and Political Science from Wellesley College. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous literary journals, including StoryQuarterly and The Carolina Quarterly. She lives in Tivoli, NY. Free and open to the community.

Join us for a reading by National Book Award finalist Dan Chaon, who will discuss the inspiration behind his latest novel, Await Your Reply. An unsettling and heartbreaking examination of identity, relationships and betrayal, the book is a literary tour de force with the momentum of a thriller. “You will never forget the scene involving a severed hand,” says critic Ron Charles in The Washington Post. “[Chaon’s novel] succeeds as brilliantly as the short stories that have won him a Pushcart Prize, an O. Henry Award and an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.” Dan Chaon is the author of two novels and two collections of stories. He is the Pauline M.
