Dark family secrets, adolescent angst and intense ambition are all core themes that authors Celeste Ng and John Wray daringly explore. After writing four different drafts within six years, Ng's debut novel Everything I Never Told You has become a New York Times bestseller and has also won Amazon's No.1 Best Book of 2014. In Ng's exquisite literary thriller, the seemingly perfect daughter of a Chinese-American family goes missing. Set in small-town Ohio during the 1970's, the disappearance triggers an unraveling of structures within the family and community. A novelist and regular contributor to The New York Times, John Wray's Lowboy follows a teenage paranoid schizophrenic who runs away from a mental institution and escapes into the gritty Manhattan underground. Not Waving But Drowning brings these two authors together for an exclusive book reading, discussion and signing at D.C.'s Folger Theatre.
