Our 45th Annual Books on Review is on the way!  Our authors this year take us into the minds and lives of many diverse people—one of the reasons we love to read, right?  Learn about the challenges facing a young Russian exchange student in Louisiana; the history of pioneers leading the war for LGBT rights; trials and peril facing two young women in rural Nevada; and life in 1970s New York City, brushing elbows with John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Linda Landau, MBA '74 will emcee. 


The writers and their books:

Lydia Fitzpatrick, Stegner FellowLights All Night Long
Mason Funk '80, The Book of Pride
Ruchika Tomar, Stegner Fellow and Jones Lecturer in Writing, A Prayer for Travelers
Tom Barbash, Stegner Fellow and former Jones Lecturer, The Dakota Winters

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, January 30th!
