Megan Abbott (You Will Know Me), Julia Dahl (Invisible City), Ed Lin (Incensed), and Vu Tran (Dragonfish) write fascinating crime stories, opening doors to often unfamiliar worlds.

Why should you attend?

“You Will Know Me is a breathless rollercoaster of a novel about the desperate limits of desire, jealousy, and ambition. “Vivid, troubling, and powerful” —Starred Booklist

“Fast-paced, suspenseful…[Invisible City] rises above the crime-novel genre in its unusual psychological, spiritual and sociological dimensions, entering a world unfamiliar to most people.”
—The Washington Post

“Ed Lin’s Incensed is a stylish, smart thriller for the mind, heart, and gut. Sex, music, history, politics, food, humor, and just a touch of violence and death—you get it all. And when you’re done, you’ll beg for more.”—Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Sympathizer

“[Dragonfish is a] most enjoyable mystery, from its distinct, dazzling premise all the way to its satisfying conclusion.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred review
