About this Event
The John Leonard Prize celebrates the year’s best first book. Incredible attention is lavished upon debut authors (the nominees and winners of this prize can attest), but once it’s time to get back to work, how do acclaimed writers work within the limelight and around expectation to carry on with their careers? 2022 finalist Zain Khalid (BROTHER ALIVE), 2020 finalist Megha Majumdar (A BURNING), and 2018 finalist Jamel Brinkley (A LUCKY MAN and WITNESS) address these lucky obstacles with National Book Critics Circle board member Lauren LeBlanc as moderator.
This is a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookends event.
Please note that seating is limited and an RSVP does not guarantee a seat.
