Tommy Wieringa, Colin Winnette, moderated by Adam Z. Levy

Stories of self-discovery transcend time and place. Coming-of-age stories, the bildungsroman, are perennial and beloved throughout all nations’ literary traditions. These authors demonstrate the durability of the genre as they introduce their dazzling new novels: acclaimed Dutch author Tommy Wieringa’s multilayered story of a group of refugees and their interwoven destinies, and Colin Winnette’s “The Job of the Wasp,” a gothic story that proves adolescence can be a nightmare.
