Morgan Babst made a critical mark with her post-Katrina novel, The Floating World. Jennifer Haigh’s fifth novel, Heat and Light, was named a Best Book of 2016 by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and NPR. Gaines Prize-winner Ladee Hubbard is the author of The Talented Ribkins, inspired by W.E.B. Du Bois’s “The Talented Tenth.” Facilitated by Maurice Carlos Ruffin, whose novel, We Cast a Shadow, will be published in 2019.
