She won a Newbery Honor Award for A Corner of the Universe.\n\nShe comes to Houston to share her New York Times bestseller Rain Reign\, a powerful story about Rose Howard\, a girl on the autism spectrum\, the dog she loves\, and a hurricane that changes everything. The New York Times Book Review writes\, “Ann M. Martin\, a Newbery Honor winner\, offers this affecting\, elegantly burnished middle-grade book about a girl with autism. . . . And yet the book isn’t actually about autism\, or even any coming-of-age theme. It’s about love and fealty\, fear\, hope\, the release from burdens\, and what kids–all kids–need but often don’t get.” Author Kate DiCamillo calls it “heartbreaking and heart-mending at the same time.”\n\nAfter a conversation and reading by the author\, Houston Pets Alive! will share some dog stories from Hurricane Harvey.

For a map and parking instructions at Cullen Performance Hall click here.\n\nReading followed by on-stage interview conducted by Alexander Parsons\, director of the University of Houston Creative Writing Program. There will NOT be a book signing after Ms. Lahiri’s reading but pre-signed books by the author will be available for sale.\n\n\n\nJHUMPA LAHIRI has captivated readers ever since her debut story collection Interpreter of Maladies was awarded the Pulitzer Prize\, the PEN/Hemingway Award\, and The New Yorker Debut of the Year. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Lahiri “one of our most beautiful chroniclers of the aching disjunctions of emigration and family\,” and Vanity Fair writes\, “Lahiri is an elegant stylist\, effortlessly placing the perfect words in the perfect order time and again so we’re transported seamlessly into another place.” Her second novel The Lowland was shortlisted for the 2013 Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award. Lahiri’s story collection Unaccustomed Earth received the 2008 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and was a finalist for the Story Prize. Her first novel The Namesake was a New York Times Notable Book and was made into a feature film starring Kal Pen. In Other Words (written in Italian and translated into English)\, her first nonfiction book\, published in 2016\, is described by The New York Times Book Review as “gorgeous... the most unusual of self-portraits. It is fitting that Italy\, a nation with no unifying language for centuries\, should inspire a writer of Jhumpa Lahiri’s stature to organize her reflections around the concept of exile.” Among her many honors\, she has received the National Humanities Medal\, the Asian American Literary Award\, and the 2017 PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short Story.\n\nTo order books by Jhumpa Lahiri at a discount click here.\nTo submit questions for Jhumpa Lahiri click here.\nTo learn more about the 2017/2018 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Series click here.\n\nLINKS:\n\n“Teacher Yourself Italian\,” by Jhumpa Lahiri\, in The New Yorker\, December 7\, 2015. \n\nAuthor Interviews—“Political Violence\, Uneasy Silence Echo in Lahiri’s Lowland\,” NPR Morning Edition\, September 23\, 2013.\n\n“The author of Interpreter of Maladies and The Namesake talks about her affinity for ‘plainness\,’ why she avoids books reviews\, and her new collection of short stories\, by Isaac Chotiner\, The Atlantic\, April 2008.

He seems almost a literary decathlete\, able to excel in any genre\,” writes The Plain Dealer. Auster—author of more than 30 books translated into 40 languages—is\, according to The Providence Journal\, “without doubt one of the most talented and affecting American writers working today.” His New York Trilogy won the Prix France Culture de Littérature Étrangère\, and he received the Prix Médicis Étranger for his seventh novel Leviathan. His other major works of fiction include The Book of Illusions\, Timbuktu\, Mr. Vertigo\, Oracle Night\, The Brooklyn Follies\, Travels in the Scriptorium\, Man in the Dark\, Invisible\, Sunset Park\, and Day/Night\, and his nonfiction includes The Invention of Solitude and his latest\, A Life in Words: In Conversation with I. B. Siegumfeldt\, which comes out in October. Among his screenplays is Smoke\, and he has written and directed four films. His French translations include works by Mallarmé\, Sartre\, and Blanchot. In 2006\, he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Auster will read from his newest novel 4 3 2 1\, a New York Times\, Los Angeles Times\, and Boston Globe bestseller and shortlisted for the 2017 Man Booker Prize. The Toronto Star calls it “wonderfully clever.... a heartfelt and engaging piece of storytelling that unflinchingly explores the 20th century American experience in all its honor and ignominy. This is\, without doubt\, Auster’s magnum opus.”\n\nReading followed by an on-stage interview\, book sale and signing.\nTo order books by Paul Auster at a discount click here.\nTo submit questions for Paul Auster click here.\nTo learn more about the 2017/2018 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Series click here.\n\nLINKS:\n\n“Paul Auster: ‘I’m going to speak out as often as I can\, otherwise I can’t live with myself\,’” The Guardian\, January 20\, 2017\, an interview with Paul Laity.\n\n“Paul Auster: By the Book\,” The New York Times Book Review\, January 12\, 2017.\n\nAn interview with Paul Auster by Joseph Mallia\, Bomb\, Spring 1988.

Doors open at 2:30 pm.\n\nInprint invites you to enjoy an afternoon adventure with renowned poet and U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera. Mr. Herrera will make a presentation about his new book Jabberwalking\, after which he will take questions from the audience\, followed by a book sale and signing*\, giving fans a chance to visit. Books will be available for sale at the event through Blue Willow Bookshop.\n\nJuan Felipe Herrera – author of more than 30 books\, including collections of poetry\, short stories\, prose\, young adult novels\, and picture books for children – was in 2015 appointed the 21st Poet Laureate of the United States\, the first Mexican American to hold the post. During his laureateship (2015-2017)\, Herrera traveled widely\, making approximately 130 official appearances\, and became known for his energy\, enthusiasm\, and desire to include everyday citizens in the celebratory work of creating literature. The son of migrant farmworkers\, educated at UCLA\, Stanford\, and the Iowa Writers Workshop\, Herrera credits his mother and teachers with encouraging him to write poetry.\n\nHe comes to Houston to share his new one-of-a-kind book for middle-graders on writing poetry\, Jabberwalking\, coming out March 2018 through Candlewick Press. In a playful format\, with his spirited illustrations\, he shares his “secrets” on “how to turn your wonder at the world around you into weird\, wild\, incandescent poetry.” As Herrera puts it in Jabberwalking: “There’s no stopping once you are a Jabber Walker – a bonified poet on the tangly streets of the planet where human beings breathe as best they can and slap their hands in the air to greet the sun where periods and dashes and verbs and nouns come flying.” Join us for a joyful afternoon with one of our great poets and champions of poetry\, in a program designed to delight and inspire.\n\nMr. Herrera’s other honors include a PEN Center USA Poetry Award\, two Américas Awards\, two Pura Belpré Author Award Honors\, an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award\, and a Los Angeles Times Book Prize Robert Kirsch Award for lifetime achievement. According to The New York Times Book Review\, “The fire that appears again and again in Herrera’s poetry exists to illuminate\, to make beautiful\, to purify\,” and The Washington Post calls his work “performative\, and communal. In this sense\, his work speaks powerfully to younger poets and audiences.”\n\n*Please note that the book signing will be conducted on a first-come\, first-served basis. Upon entering the theater\, people wishing to have books signed will be given a number\, and the book signing will take place in numerical order after the on-stage presentation.\n\n  URL:http://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-juan-felipe-herrera-reading/ LOCATION:10410 Manhattan Drive\, Houston\, TX\, 77096\, United States GEO:29.6691877;-95.4743594 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=10410 Manhattan Drive Houston TX 77096 United States;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=10410 Manhattan Drive:geo:-95.4743594,29.6691877 CATEGORIES:Cool Brains!

Her work has been translated into 16 languages. She will be reading from her novel Happiness\, coming out in March 2018.

Her story collection Pájaros en la Boca (Mouthful of Birds)\, for which she received the Casa de las Américas Prize\, will come out in English in 2018.
