Details on how to access the reading will be provided to season subscribers and to those who purchase $30 general admission tickets in their Eventbrite email receipts. \n  \n \nEVENT DETAILS: Jonathan Franzen will give a brief reading from his new novel Crossroads\, followed by a conversation with fiction writer David Means. For information on season subscriptions\, click here. \nTICKET INFORMATION: General admission tickets include access to the reading\, a hardcover copy of Franzen’s new novel Crossroads\, and shipping within the United States. Your book will be shipped via USPS at the beginning of November to the address you provide. \nJONATHAN FRANZEN’s writing will make you “laugh\, wince\, groan\, weep\, leave the table\, and maybe the country\, promise never to go home again\, and be reminded of why you read serious fiction in the first place” (The New York Review of Books). A master of family drama\, Franzen is the author of five novels including Purity\, Freedom\, and The Twenty-Seventh City. His third novel The Corrections drew widespread critical acclaim\, earning him the National Book Award and a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize\, the National Book Critics Circle Award\, and the PEN/Faulkner Award. In the words of his contemporary and friend David Foster Wallace\, “Funny and deeply sad\, large-hearted and merciless\, The Corrections is a testament to the range and depth of pleasures great fiction affords.” \nFranzen joins us to read from and talk about his first book in a new trilogy Crossroads: A Key to All Mythologies\, Volume 1\, which traces fraught family relationships across three generations. According to a starred Kirkus review\, “Franzen imbues his books with big ideas\, in this case about responsibility to family\, self\, God\, country\, and one’s fellow man\, among other matters\, all the while digging deep into his characters’ emotions\, experiences\, desires\, and doubts in a way that will please readers seeking to connect to books heart-first.” Franzen is also a frequent contributor to The New Yorker\, where he writes essays on contemporary fiction\, climate change\, travel\, technology\, and more. He was named one of Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters\, the German Akademie der Künste\, and the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Franzen is an avid bird watcher and lives in Santa Cruz\, California. \nDAVID MEANS is the author of five short story collections\, including Assorted Fire Events\, The Secret Goldfish\, and Instructions for a Funeral\, and the novel Hystopia. His books have been translated into eight languages\, and he has won two O. Henry Prizes\, the Pushcart Prize\, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His work has appeared in The New Yorker\, Harper’s Magazine\, Esquire\, The Best American Short Stories\, and elsewhere. He teaches English at Vassar College. \n  \n URL:https://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-jonathan-franzen-livestream-reading/ CATEGORIES:2021/2022 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://inprinthouston.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Franzen-Final.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20211028T180000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20211028T190000 DTSTAMP:20211019T205547 CREATED:20211014T154114Z LAST-MODIFIED:20211014T154339Z UID:40861-1635444000-1635447600@inprinthouston.org SUMMARY:Comité Permanente DESCRIPTION:Ruinas \nBienvenidxs a una nueva temporada de la Serie de Lecturas en español organizadas por Comité Permanente. \nComité Permanente es un grupo creado por lxs estudiantes de doctorado de Escritura Creativa en Español en la Universidad de Houston.

Details on how to access the reading will be provided to season subscribers and to those who purchase $5 general admission tickets in their Eventbrite email receipts.\n \n \nEVENT DETAILS: Wole Soyinka will give a brief reading from his new novel Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth\, followed by a conversation with John Guess\, Chief Executive Officer at the Houston Museum of African American Culture. \n“You don’t see things the same way when you encounter a voice like that of WOLE SOYINKA\,” said Toni Morrison. Wole Soyinka is a distinguished political activist\, playwright\, poet\, and novelist from Nigeria. He is the first African writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature and was praised by the Nobel jury as a writer who “in a wide cultural perspective and with poetic overtones fashions the drama of existence.” Soyinka\, who writes in English\, is the author of five memoirs\, eight poetry collections\, and 30 plays that draw richly on Nigerian politics and mythology. His two previous novels\, The Interpreters and Season of Anomy\, garnered for him a global reputation as “the conscience of Nigeria” (The New York Times) and won the New Statesmen Literary Prize. His other honors include the Anisfield-Wolf Lifetime Achievement Award\, the International Poetry Award\, and the International Humanist Award. \nSoyinka joins us to read from and talk about his first novel in 48 years Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth\, which he wrote during the pandemic. Set in an imaginary Nigeria\, the book is at once a witty whodunit and a satirical commentary on power\, greed\, and corruption informed by Soyinka’s personal experience with political exile and imprisonment. Since the 1960s\, Soyinka has advocated for Nigerian democracy and spoken out against military dictatorships worldwide. He is the founder of the Democratic Front for a People’s Federation and famously snuck his poems out of prison on toilet paper rolls. He lives in Abeokuta\, Nigeria. \nJOHN GUESS is the Chief Executive Officer at the Houston Museum of African American Culture and serves on the boards of the Contemporary Art Museum Houston\, the Museum of Fine Arts Glassell School\, Art Lies\, the Houston Arts Alliance\, and Artadia. \n URL:https://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-wole-soyinka-reading/ CATEGORIES:2021/2022 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://inprinthouston.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Wole-Final.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20211212T160000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20211212T170000 DTSTAMP:20211019T205547 CREATED:20210914T201055Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210915T155624Z UID:40428-1639324800-1639328400@inprinthouston.org SUMMARY:Inprint Book Club discusses Ruth Ozeki's The Book of Form and Emptiness DESCRIPTION:This Inprint Book Club meeting will take place via Zoom.

Du Bois and Monster in the Middle\, followed by an on-stage conversation with Joy Sewing\, Lifestyle and Culture Columnist at the Houston Chronicle\, and a book sale and signing. \n HONORÉE FANONNE JEFFERS is gifted poet\, essayist\, and novelist whose work is “a thinking woman’s blues that continues to challenge\, delight\, and terrify” (Elizabeth Alexander). Raised throughout the South\, Jeffers is the author of five award-winning poetry collections including The Gospel Barbecue\, Outlandish Blues\, and Red Clay Suite. Her fifth collection The Age of Phillis was nominated for the National Book Award\, the PEN/Voelcker Award\, and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and won the NAACP Image Award. About The Age of Phillis\, Cyrus Cassells writes\, “With passion and epic precision\, Honorée Fanonne Jeffers renders Phillis Wheatley’s unprecedented predicament and genius in rich and kaleidoscopic fashion….This masterful book is a fountain of spirited dedication and lucid reclamation\, and contemporary American poetry is richer for it.” Jeffers will read from and talk about her debut novel The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois\, which was named a most-anticipated book of the season by Goodreads\, People\, USA Today\, and The Observer. Jacqueline Woodson describes the book as “a sweeping\, brilliant\, and beautiful narrative that is at once a love song to Black girlhood\, family\, history\, joy\, pain\, and so much more.” A starred Kirkus review adds\, “If this isn’t the Great American Novel\, it’s a mighty attempt at achieving one.” For her lifetime of work on race\, gender\, and culture\, Jeffers has been honored with the Harper Lee Award for Literary Distinction and inducted in the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame. Jeffers is an Associate Professor of creative writing at the University of Oklahoma. \n“TIPHANIE YANIQUE is a prodigiously talented new writer with a sharp voice\, wicked humor\, and compassion beyond measure\,” says Tayari Jones.

With the publication of her debut short story collection How to Escape a Leper Colony\, Yanique was named to the National Book Foundation’s prestigious “5 Under 35” list. Yanique’s first novel Land of Love and Drowning\, which draws on her upbringing in the U.S. Virgin Islands\, won the Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Award\, the Phillis Wheatley Award for Pan-African Literature\, and the Rosenthal Family Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. According to BookPage\, “Yanique’s vivid writing\, echoing Toni Morrison and Gabriel García Márquez\, builds a whole world within its language and cadence.” Listed by The Boston Globe as one of the “16 Cultural Figures to Watch Out For\,” Yanique is also the author of the poetry collection Wife and the children’s book I Am the Virgin Islands\, which was commissioned by the First Lady of the Virgin Islands. She joins us to read from and talk about her new novel Monster in the Middle\, which Natasha Trethewey calls “a compelling exploration of how we become who we are and how we manage to find our way to love. In her lyrical prose\, the myriad possibilities of being coalesce into something that feels\, gloriously\, like destiny.” Yanique\, who was inspired to become a writer by her librarian grandmother\, is an Associate Professor of creative writing at Emory University. \n \nJOY SEWING is the Chronicle’s lifestyle and culture columnist\, focusing on pop culture\, style\, parenting\, social justice\, and race.

Olga Tokarczuk’s translator Jennifer Croft will give a brief reading from Tokarczuk’s new novel The Books Of Jacob\, followed by a conversation between Tokarczuk and a fellow writer.  \nOLGA TOKARCZUK\, when she was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Literature\, was praised by the selection committee for “a narrative imagination that with encyclopedic passion represents the crossing of boundaries as a form of life.” A bestselling author in her home country of Poland\, whose work has been translated into more than 50 languages\, Tokarczuk has published nine novels\, two story collections\, five nonfiction works\, a collection of poetry\, and a children’s book. She rose to international acclaim after her seventh novel\, Flights\, called “an indisputable masterpiece” by Publishers Weekly\, won the Booker International Prize and the Nike Prize\, Poland’s most prestigious literary award. Her eighth novel\, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead\, earned nominations for the Booker International Prize\, National Book Award for Translated Literature\, and PEN/America Translation Prize. About the book\, Annie Proulx writes\, “Extraordinary. Tokarczuk’s novel is funny\, vivid\, dangerous\, and disturbing\, and it raises some fierce questions about human behavior. My sincere admiration for her brilliant work.” \nTokarczuk joins us to read from and talk about her magnum opus\, The Books of Jacob\, translated by Jennifer Croft. A journey across seven borders\, five languages\, and three major religions\, beginning in 1752 and ending in the mid-20th century\, the book revolves around the controversial 18th century Polish-Jewish religious leader Jacob Frank. After its publication in Poland in 2014\, The Books of Jacob was a national bestseller for nearly a year and the recipient of the Nike Prize\, Nike Audience Award\, Kulturhuset Stadsteatern International Literary Prize in Stockholm\, and the Swiss Jan Michalski Prize. The Michalski jury called it a “work of immense erudition with a powerful epic sweep….a universal tale of the struggle against rigid thinking\, either religious or philosophical….that warns against our inability to embrace an environment complex in its diversity….The Books of Jacob\, by telling the past with a dazzling virtuosity\, helps us to better understand the world in which we live.” Each year\, Tokarczuk co-hosts an annual literary festival near her home in Silesia\, Poland\, and funds scholarships for aspiring writers. \n URL:https://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-olga-tokarczuk-reading/ CATEGORIES:2021/2022 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://inprinthouston.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Olga-Final-1.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20220320T160000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20220320T170000 DTSTAMP:20211019T205547 CREATED:20210914T201748Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210915T155803Z UID:40434-1647792000-1647795600@inprinthouston.org SUMMARY:Inprint Book Club discusses Wole Soyinka's Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth DESCRIPTION:This Inprint Book Club meeting will take place via Zoom.

No one else taught me more about how important it was to think about how words make people feel.” Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Neon Vernacular\, Komunyakaa is the author of 16 poetry collections that draw on his rich life experience. “His voice\, whether it embodies the specific experiences of a Black man\, a soldier in Vietnam\, or a child in Bogalusa\, Louisiana\, is universal.

Weaving together personal narrative\, jazz rhythms\, and vernacular language\, his other works include The Emperor of Water Clocks\, Warhorses\, Talking Dirty to the Gods\, Pleasure Dome\, and Dien Cai Dau.

A jazzy master of enjambment and arresting opening lines\, Komunyakaa synthesizes natural history\, myth\, and wide-ranging intellectual curiosity into sensory acts of witness.” Komunyakaa lives in New York\, New York. \nCARL PHILLIPS is “an artist of generous instincts and rare authority” (American Academy of Arts and Letters Award winner citation) whose writing “brings echoes of 20th-century eminences such as Wallace Stevens\, John Ashbery\, T.S. Eliot\, and Rainer Maria Rilke” (St. Louis Post Dispatch). A classicist by training\, Phillips is the author of 15 poetry collections that blend mythology\, history\, and philosophy\, including Double Shadow\, Silverchest\, Reconnaissance\, and Wild Is the Wind. About his fifteenth poetry collection Pale Colors in a Tall Field\, The Millions writes\, “Phillips is the type of writer to make us believe that\, perhaps\, poetry truly is the form in which story and song best breathe together.” Phillips has also published two books of craft essays\, The Art of Daring: Risk\, Restlessness\, Imagination and Coin of the Realm: Essays on the Art and Life of Poetry\, and a translation of Sophocles’ Philoctetes.

For information on season subscriptions\, click here. \nEVENT DETAILS: This in-person reading will take place at a centrally-located venue in Houston\, Texas\, and will be available to season subscribers for viewing on the Inprint website; More details to come. Hernan Diaz and Alejandro Zambra will give a brief readings from their new novels Trust and Chilean Poet\, followed by an on-stage conversation with Mark Haber\, Bookseller at Brazos Bookstore\, and a book sale and signing. \nBorn in Argentina and raised in Sweden\, HERNAN DIAZ is a celebrated fiction writer whose debut novel In the Distance was called “an original Western” that is “bound to live on as a classic” (The New York Times). An instant success\, In the Distance was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award and winner of a Whiting Award and the Saroyan International Prize for “a gorgeously written novel that charts one man’s growth from boyhood to mythic status as he journeys between continents and the extremes of the human condition” (Pulitzer Prize finalist citation). “A page-turning adventure story that’s also a profound meditation on solitude and companionship\, foreignness\, and home\,” says The Guardian\, “One of the many delights of In the Distance is the way the writing oscillates between the austere and the lyrical\, the realistic and the dream-like.” Diaz is also the author of the nonfiction book Borges\, between History and Eternity and edits the Spanish academic journal Revista Hispánica Moderna. He has published essays and short stories in The New York Times\, The Paris Review\, Cabinet\, Kenyon Review\, Granta\, and elsewhere. Diaz will read from and talk about his new novel Trust\, a story of wealth and talent\, trust and intimacy\, and truth and perception in 1920s New York City. Chronicling the controversial marriage of a Wall Street tycoon and the daughter of a penniless aristocrat\, Trust explores how power and money can manipulate facts and reality. Diaz\, who lives in Brooklyn\, New York\, is the Associate Director of the Hispanic Institute at Columbia University. \nALEJANDRO ZAMBRA – Chilean novelist\, short story writer\, and poet – is “the defining light of today’s Latin American literature” (John Wray). His debut novel Bonsai was the winner of the Chilean Critics Award and the film adaptation was presented at the Cannes Film Festival. Also the author of the novels The Private Life of Trees and Ways of Going Home\, Zambra was named one of Granta’s “Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists” and was included on the distinguished Bogotá39 list. He is also well known for his story collection My Documents\, which was a finalist for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and “conveys with striking honesty what it’s like to be Chilean today” (Publishers Weekly). Zambra’s Multiple Choice extends this reflection in the form of a standardized test\, chronicling his childhood under the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. About Multiple Choice\, Valeria Luiselli writes\, “When I read Zambra I feel like someone’s shooting fireworks inside my head. His prose is as compact as a grain of gunpowder\, but its allusions and ramifications branch out and illuminate even the most remote corners of our minds.” His essays and short stories have appeared in The New Yorker\, The New York Times Magazine\, The Paris Review\, Harper’s\, and elsewhere. Zambra joins us to read from and talk about his new novel Chilean Poet\, translated by Megan McDowell. Said to be the most substantial work of his career\, Chilean Poet is a moving story about fathers and sons\, ambition and failure\, and the many forms of family. The reception has been enthusiastic – El País calls it “exemplary\, humorous\, and moving”; and in Letras Libres\, Rodrigo Fresán sees it as “the Great Chilean Novel about the poetry of his generation.” Will Corral in World Literature Today describes it as “a charming\, very rare\, and disconcerting tribute to the poet’s vocation…. one of the two masterpieces of this century by his selected cohort\, and Zambra is just getting started.” He lives in Mexico City. \nMARK HABER is the operations manager and a bookseller at Brazos Bookstore. His debut novel\, Reinhardt’s Garden\, was nominated for the 2020 PEN/Hemingway award for debut novel. His second book\, Saint Sebastian’s Abyss will be released in May 2022. \n URL:https://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-hernan-diaz-alejandro-zambra-reading/ LOCATION:TBA\, Venue to be announced CATEGORIES:2021/2022 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://inprinthouston.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Hernan-and-Alejandro.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20220515T160000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20220515T170000 DTSTAMP:20211019T205547 CREATED:20210914T202326Z LAST-MODIFIED:20210915T155942Z UID:40440-1652630400-1652634000@inprinthouston.org SUMMARY:Inprint Book Club discusses Tiphanie Yanique's Monster in the Middle DESCRIPTION:This Inprint Book Club meeting will take place via Zoom.
