Please join Green Apple Books and Litquake at The Emerald Tablet on April Fool's Day at 7:00 p.m. to hear a conversation between Molly Antopol, author of The Unamericans, and Anthony Marra, author of A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

Molly Antopol teaches creative writing at Stanford University, where she was a recent Wallace Stegner Fellow. A recipient of the National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 award, she holds an MFA from Columbia University and lives in San Francisco. Her debut story collection, The UnAmericans, will be published by W.W. Norton in February 2014. She’s at work on a novel, The After Party, which will also be published by Norton.

Anthony Marra is the winner of a Whiting Award, a Pushcart Prize, and the Narrative Prize. He holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and is currently a Jones Lecturer in Fiction at Stanford University. His first novel, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, was published in May 2013. Ann Patchett, author of State of Wonder and Bel Canto, said Marra’s debut was “my favorite book of the year….Many people can write beautifully, but few manage to create a whole that is more valuable than the sum of its parts. Marra does this in spades. It is a brilliant book.”
