Who? New! International

Each season, BKBF presents several international debut authors whom we want to shine the light on for our audience. This year we present Irish author Conner Habib (Hawk Mountain), Jared Marcel Pollen (Venus&Document) from the Czech Republic, Tibetan author Tsering Yangzom Lama (We Measure the Earth With Our Bodies), and Okwiri Oduor (Things They Lost) from Kenya. This year, we welcome special guest, Jonathan Lethem, who will introduce the authors and talk about his own experience when he was a debut author.
