Join us for the Brooklyn launch of Katie Kitamura’s new novel and staff favorite, Gone to the Forest. She'll be joined by award-winning author Adam Rapp (The Children and the Wolves), and the two will be in conversation with Sarah Weinman, news editor for Publishers Marketplace.

Jenn says: "In Gone to the Forest, a family falls apart at the same time as their country's political strife comes to a head. With a sharp eye (not to mention sharp prose), Kitamura examines the fault-lines in ourselves and our nations and what it takes to split them wide open."

In The Children and the Wolves, 3-year-old Frog is held hostage by three teenagers -- but barely notices, as she immerses herself deeper and deeper into a video game. Instead, it's the teenagers that start to crack. Rapp is the Printz Honor-winning author of Punkzilla.
