Join us in welcoming Joanne Leedom-Ackerman and Elliot Ackerman for a conversation between mother and son about their recent novels!
Both political thrillers, but of different kinds, BURNING DISTANCE by Joanne Leedom-Ackerman and HALCYON by Elliot Ackerman offer us new frameworks for engaging with questions of contemporary history.

Her fiction includes The Dark Path to the River, a regional bestseller, and No Marble Angels.
