Who? New!

Each season, BKBF presents several debut authors whom we want to shine the light on for our audience. This year we present Madelaine Lucas (Thirst for Salt), Soraya Palmer (The Human Origins of Beatrice Porter and Other Essential Ghosts), Kōtuku Titihuia Nuttall (Tauhou), Jinwoo Chong (Flux), and Eliot Duncan (Ponyboy). This year, we welcome special guest, Catherine Lacey (Biography of X), who will introduce the authors and talk about her own experience when she was a debut author.
