Leah Hager Cohen

Leah Hager Cohen’s The Grief of Others is a 2011 New York TimesNotable Book of the Year. Losing a newborn is terrible enough, but when the baby comes wrapped in a shroud of secrets, insufferable grief often tears family members apart. The Ryries are just such a family.

Edith Pearlman 

Binocular Vision: New & Selected Stories is a feast for fiction aficionados. The 2011 recipient of the PEN/Malamud Award, Ms. Pearlman gives new meaning to the word “storyteller” in these 21 short stories, which include themes of young love, old love, thwarted love, and loved denied — and span settings from Jerusalem and South America to New England locations.


Tim Riley

Tim Riley is NPR’s music critic and biographer of John Lennon in Lennon: The Man, the Myth, the Music – the Definitive Life. Mr. Riley’s well-researched account of Lennon proves that there is still room for one more biography of this legendary figure.

Lou Ureneck

In Cabin: Two Brothers, a Dream, and Five Acres in Maine, memoir writer Lou Ureneck turns his disappointments that come from middle-age job loss, the death of his mother, a health scare, and a divorce into a moving meditation on brotherhood and a return to a simpler, more meaningful way of life.
