Jason Sokol with Joshua Guild

Jason Sokol presents The Heavens Might Crack: The Death and Legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
In conversation with Joshua Guild

On April 4, 1968 – fifty years ago this spring – a fatal shot rang out in Memphis and quickly rippled across the world. News of Martin Luther King Jr.’s murder stopped people in their tracks and rendered them speechless, moved many to tears and others to celebration, drove some to violence and still others to political activism. Historian Jason Sokol’s The Heavens Might Crack presents a vivid portrait of how Americans – as well as others around the globe – grappled with King’s death, revealing the enduring consequences King’s assassination had for the shape of his own legacy, the course of the Civil Rights Movement, and race relations in America. Sokol discusses his book and the surrounding issues with Joshua Guild, Associate Professor of History and African American Studies at Princeton and author of the forthcoming book In the Shadows of the Metropolis: Cultural Politics and Black Communities in Postwar New York and London.

Glen David Gold presents I Will Be Complete
In conversation with Lev Grossman

Glen David Gold, best-selling author of Carter Beats the Devil and Sunnyside, presents I Will Be Complete, a big-hearted memoir about growing up in the wake of the destructive choices of an extremely unconventional mother. I Will Be Complete is a vivid, extraordinary account of an outrageous life led up and down the California Coast, from the go-go 60s, to the inimitable 70s, to the punk-rock 80s and beyond. Across decades and cities, Gold returns again and again to his relationship with his parents – a father of “cheerful amorality” and a mother who abandoned him at the age of 12 – who force him to choose between being complete and being emotionally whole. Clear-eyed and heartbreaking, Gold's story ultimately speaks to everyone who has struggled with the complexity of parental bonds by searching for – and finding – autonomy. The critically-acclaimed novelist and short story writer presents his memoir in conversation with novelist, critic and Greenlight neighbor Lev Grossman. A signing and Q&A follows the presentation.

Brian Catling presents The Cloven
In conversation with Tobias Carroll

Poet, sculptor, painter, and performance artist Brian Catling presents The Cloven, the epic climax to his beloved, genre-busting Vorrh Trilogy. In the stunning conclusion to the series – set in a parallel Africa where fact and fantasy collide -- the colonial city of Essenwald gives up all its secrets, as the sentient, eternal forest known as the Vorrh seeks to reclaim what has been taken from it. Those who have been enslaved shall be no longer, and heroes once thought dead shall reemerge stronger than ever. The Cloven is a book of battles and betrayals, in which Catling’s incredible creations all fulfill their destinies and lead us to an epic conflagration with the fate of mankind hanging in the balance. Catling presents the epic conclusion to the trilogy at Greenlight, in conversation with author and Vol. 1 Brooklyn editor (and Greenlight neighbor) Tobias Carroll.

Book Launch: Amitava Kumar presents Immigrant, Montana
In conversation with Jennifer Egan
Wine reception to follow

Amitava Kumar, author of the widely praised Lunch with a Bigot, presents his latest novel about a young new immigrant to the United States in search of love: across dividing lines between cultures, between sexes, and between the particular desires of one man and the women he comes to love. In the story of his years at a university in New York, the narrator of Immigrant, Montana describes the joys and disappointments of his immigrant experience; the unfamiliar political and social textures of campus life; the indelible influence of a charismatic professor; the very different natures of the women he loved, and of himself in and out of love with each of them. Pulitzer Prize winner Viet Thanh Nguyen calls Immigrant, Montana a “beguiling meditation on memory and migration, sex and politics, ideas and art, and race and ambiguity.” Kumar discusses his new novel at Greenlight, in conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and Greenlight neighbor Jennifer Egan (Manhattan Beach, A Vist from the Goon Squad). A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.

Wine reception to follow

Greenlight neighbor, journalist and tech writer David Ewalt (Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and the People Who Play It) returns to Greenlight to launch his new book Defying Reality! No longer just a mainstay of science fiction, virtual reality, often referred to as VR, has started to see mainstream success with companies such as Oculus, Sony, and HTC. Ewalt chronicles the origins of VR in Cold War military laboratories, and traces it through decades of hype and failed products, to a nineteen-year-old video game aficionado from California whose advancements made the recent breakthroughs in VR possible, to the Silicon Valley giants who are now creating a new hundred-billion-dollar industry. Highly praised by fellow technology writers and futurists, Defying Reality makes the argument that VR has the potential to impact every aspect of our social and independent lives. Ewalt discusses his book at Greenlight, followed by a wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.

Award-winning, critically-acclaimed author Samantha Hunt (The Dark Dark) presents The Seas– her first book, for which she won the National Book Foundation award -- recently reissued by Tin House Books and with a new introduction by Maggie Nelson. In a coastal fishing town a young misfit – whose father, a sailor, walked into the ocean eleven years earlier -- believes she is a mermaid. True to myth, she finds herself in hard love with a land-bound man, an Iraq War veteran thirteen years her senior. The mesmerizing, fevered coming-of-age tale – between reality and fairy tale, hope and delusion -- that follows will land her in jail. In her introduction, Maggie Nelson calls The Seas “radiant with magic, some of it dangerous… [I] was scalded by its beauty.” Hunt presents The Seas at Greenlight, followed by a wine reception.

In conversation with Anna Holmes
Wine reception to follow

Author and founder of The Li.st Glynnis MacNicol presents No One Tells You This, a fearless and feminist new memoir praised by Rebecca Traister, Aminatou Sow, Jessica Bennett, and more that asks: if the story doesn’t end with marriage or a child, what then? Despite a successful career as a writer, and an exciting life in New York City, at the age of 40 MacNicol was constantly reminded she had neither of the things the world expected of a woman her age: a partner or a baby. Lacking a good blueprint for how to be a woman alone in the world – and refusing a narrative of pity or simplicity – MacNicol creates her own. No One Tells You This is an exhilarating journey of self-discovery and a fearless reckoning with modern womanhood that will resonate with anyone determined to live by their own rules. MacNicol launches her new memoir in conversation with Anna Holmes, writer, editor, and founder of Jezebel, with a wine reception to follow.

Book Lauch: Eleanor Kriseman presents The Blurry Years

In conversation with Julie Buntin
Wine reception to follow

Debut author – and Greenlight bookseller emerita – Eleanor Kriseman launches The Blurry Years, a powerful and unorthodox coming-of-age story set against the vividly-drawn backdrop of early-eighties Florida. At the center of The Blurry Years is a stirringly twisted mother-daughter relationship, and a young girl’s scattered childhood, from cars to strangers’ houses to the sand-dusted apartments of the tourist towns that litter the Florida coastline. The Blurry Years is the story of what it's like to grow up too fast and absorb too much, to watch adults behaving badly; what it's like to be simultaneously in thrall to and terrified of the mother who is the only family you've ever known, who moves you from town to town to leave her own mistakes behind. Kriseman discusses her debut with fellow novelist Julie Buntin (Marlena). A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.

Book Launch: Amanda Stern presents Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life In conversation with A.M. Homes

Author and host of the Happy Ending Reading series Amanda Stern presents hotly anticipated, widely praised new memoir about living life on the razor’s edge of panic, in the vein of bestselling memoirs about mental illness like Andrew Solomon's Noonday Demon, Sarah Hepola's Blackout, and Daniel Smith's Monkey MindLittle Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life charts Stern’s childhood in 1970s and 80s New York – from her mother’s barefoot bohemian world in Greenwich Village to the sanitized, stricter sphere of her uptown father -- where Amanda experiences the magic and madness of life through the filter of unrelenting panic. Tenderly delivered and expertly structured, Amanda Stern's memoir is a document of the transformation of New York City and a deep, personal, and comedic account of the trials and errors of seeing life through a very unusual lens. Stern launches her new memoir at Greenlight, in conversation with bestselling writer A.M Homes, author of The Safety of Objects. A wine reception follows to celebrate the launch.
