The New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2013 Includes Three Lavin Speakers

We are so pleased to see three books by Lavin speakers appear on the New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2013 list. Selected by the editors of The New York Times Book Review, this list, year after year, includes great books by our speakers.

MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood
"The survivors of “Oryx and Crake” and “The Year of the Flood” await a final showdown, in a trilogy’s concluding entry."

In her talks, Atwood speaks on a wide range of issues relating to literature, social activism, political engagement, the creative process, the artist's role in society, technology and art, and, of course, her own accomplished body of work.

This Town by Mark Leibovich
"An entertaining and deeply troubling view of Washington."

In witty—yet seriously insightful—keynotes, Leibovich presents a blistering, stunning, and often hysterically funny examination of Washington, DC: a city transformed by wealth, new media, and celebrity.

The Unwinding by George Packer
"With a nod to John Dos Passos, Packer offers a gripping narrative survey of today’s hard times; the 2013 National Book Award winner for nonfiction."

In his talks, Packer presents a profoundly moving and utterly original perspective on freedom, politics, economy, collapse, and change.
