New Yorkers will once again choose one book from five finalists for the city to read as one, as part of the 2018 One Book, One New York campaign. This year the city has selected five books where the city of New York plays a powerful role in the story-telling, and tonight we feature a special event presenting the books and authors in conversation. Join us for a fascinating discussion with finalists Esmeralda Santiago(When I was Puerto Rican), Imbolo Mbue (Behold the Dreamers), Hari Kunzru (White Tears), Jennifer Egan (Manhattan Beach), and film director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), who is making a film of the late James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk. Vote for One Book at

Presented with the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, New York Magazine, Vulture, PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, and The New School Creative Writing Program.
