The Women's National Book Association (WNBA) is a nonprofit organization that promotes reading and supports the role of women in the community of books.

After 20 years of marriage to a gorgeous Greek man, Italian-American author Davis agrees to move to Greece, where her husband insists he will be happy. The result is her funny and self-deprecating memoir, Harlot's Sauce: A Memoir of Food, Family, Love, Loss, and Greece. Davis goes to Greece thinking it might save her marriage. But she discovers, as she shared in a recent interview: "I thought it would help him. It turns out it helped me."


Year of the RhinocerosNeff will read from Year of the Rhinoceros, his compelling and heartfelt debut novel of disillusionment and its consequences. Neff explores what went wrong in this country a couple of decades ago, and keeps going wrong even now. Under Ronald Reagan, democracy is fading, and two employees in a small agency created by Congress, the Office of Whistleblower Counsel, are determined to save it.

"Neff is a raucous new voice in American Literature."
– Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize winning author
