John Ehle reads from and talks about his book, The Journey of August King, the story of an early 19th-century white farmer and a runaway slave girl whose paths and lives cross against the backdrops of social racism and individual conscience. This book is also the basis for a recently-released theatrical film.

George Garrett reads from and talks about his novel The King of Babylon Shall not Come Against You, which is about American society since the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1968. Kirkus Reviews calls the book an entertaining colloquium on the state of the nation.
