Bellwether Night with winners Hillary Jordan & Naomi Benaron

Colfax Avenue: In honor of the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, founded by Barbara Kingsolver, we are pleased to present two Bellwether Prize-winners, who will join us for a special presentation and booksigning.

 

  Hillary Jordan, who won the 2006 prize for her novel Mudbound, will discuss and sign the new paperback edition of her novel When She Woke (Algonquin), a powerful reimagining of The Scarlet Letter and a timely fable about a stigmatized woman struggling to navigate an America of the not-too-distant future, where the line between church and state has been eradicated and convicted felons are no longer imprisoned and rehabilitated, but "chromed" and released back into the population.

Naomi Benaron will discuss and sign the new paperback edition of her 2010 Bellwether Prize-winning novel Running the Rift (Algonquin), which follows Jean Patrick Nkuba, a gifted Rwandan boy, from the day he knows that running will be his life to the moment he must run to save his life, a 10-year span in which his country is undone by the Hutu-Tutsi tensions.

“Benaron accomplishes the improbable feat of wringing genuine loveliness from unspeakable horror”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
