For the 16th consecutive year, an amazing group of Stanford writers will be discussing their recently published books. Each author will make a brief presentation and be available for conversation and book signing.

This program is hosted by Peter Stansky, Field Professor of History, Emeritus, Stanford. Drop in, or even better, indulge yourself by spending the entire afternoon in the company of these bright, entertaining, and stimulating writers. At the event, the Stanford Bookstore will sell books at a 10 percent discount, and authors will sign copies. Please note, the schedule and author list are subject to change.
