Yangsze Choo, Terry Gamble, Christopher Tilghman, moderated by Janis Cooke Newman

Lushly written, utterly engrossing, and often funny, these historical novels transport us to worlds full of surprising connections that cross divisions of class, race, and more. Yangsze Choo (“The Night Tiger”), Terry Gamble (“The Eulogist”), and Christopher Tilghman (“Thomas and Beal in the Midi”) explore power dynamics and tricky relationships from 1930’s colonial Malaysia, to pre-Civil War Ohio, to the streets of Paris and the vineyards of Midi at the close of the Victorian era. Moderated by Janis Cooke Newman, author of the historical novels “A Master Plan for Rescue” and “Mary: Mrs. A. Lincoln” (USA Today’s Historical Novel of the Year).
