Founded in 1917, Grove/Atlantic is one of the last remaining major independent publishers in America. Dedicated to publishing books of artistic merit and integrity and known for taking risks, Grove/Atlantic presents five award-winning authors reading from their most recent and yet-to-be-published books.



Josh Weil is the author of the novella collection The New Valley, a New York Times Editors Choice that won the Sue Kaufman Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a 5-under-35 Award from the National Book Foundation. His novel, The Great Glass Sea, will be published in early 2014.

Dani Shapiro is the author of the memoirs Devotion and Slow Motion, and the novels Family History and Black & White. Her work has appeared in the New Yorker, Granta, Tin House, One Story, and Ploughshares. Her new book, Still Writing: The Pleasures and Perils of a Creative Life, was published last fall.

Patricia Engel is the author of It's Not Love, It's Just Paris and Vida, a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway and Young Lions Fiction Awards and a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. Her stories have appeared in A Public Space, The Atlantic, Boston Review, Guernica, and Harvard Review.

Margaret Wrinkle is the author of the novel Wash, which was short-listed for the Center for Fiction's Flaherty Dunnan First Novel Prize and nominated for the Crook's Corner Prize for debut Southern novel. Her award-winning documentary, broken\ground, explores the racial divide in Birmingham, Alabama.

Pablo Medina is the author of fourteen books of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and translation, among them the critically acclaimed novel Cubop City Blues and, with Mark Statman, an English version of Lorca's Poet in New York. A recipient of numerous awards, he teaches at Emerson College.
