Throughout its history, Riverhead Books has consistently published cutting-edge literary works from bold, remarkable authors. In 2018, Riverhead celebrates its 25th anniversary, and we’re pulling out all the stops! Join award-winning authors Daniel Alarcón (The King Is Always Above the People), Lesley Nneka Arimah (What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky), Lauren Groff (Florida), and James McBride (Five-Carat Soul) as they introduce readings from their recent collections and celebrate what it means to be a Riverhead author. Plus, two never-before-heard stories by R.O. Kwon (The Incendiaries) and Aja Gabel (The Ensemble) written just for us! Hosted by fellow Riverhead author Meg Wolitzer (The Female Persuasion) with performances by Jaime Zevallos (Cloak and Dagger), Crystal Dickinson (The Low Road), Hettienne Park (Hannibal), Maria Dizzia (13 Reasons Why), and Teagle F. Bougere (Queen America).
