Why should you attend?

“Endless clever details and suspenseful plotting make this speculative-fiction debut [Followers] an addictive treat.”―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Scott proves himself an impressive myth-slayer and fable-maker… The World Doesn’t Require You reminds us that having to fight racism has a strange way of distorting everything one touches… With two books under his belt, Scott seems to have barely skimmed the surface of the many more characters and conflicts he could explore in Cross River.”―Salamishah Tillet, New York Times Book Review

Barn 8 is a novel like no other: An urgent moral fantasia, a post-human parable, a tender portrait of animal dignity and genius.”―Dana Spiotta
