It might seem like winter will never end, but at Albertine Books we are leaping into spring with an array of exciting events in April. On April 10, five literary figures (Garth Risk Hallberg, Maaza Mengiste, Caroline Weber, and H. C. Wilentz) will go head to head in our second annual Albertine Prize Book Battle, moderated by LitHub editor-in-chief, Jonny Diamond. Join us for a glass a wine, and the chance to see each of the five guests defending their favorite books among the Albertine Prize nominees.

On April 17, don’t miss the fifth meeting of the Albertine Book Club, discussing Albertine prize nominee Compass, by Mathias Enard, and moderated by Cécile David-Weill and Caroline Weber. The Book Club is free for Albertine members and students with a valid ID.

You have until May 1st to read and vote!

Also on April 21st, don’t miss author Leila Slimani and journalist and activist Mona Eltahawy at Albertine Books, where they will discuss Slimani’s 2016 Prix Goncourt winning novel A Chanson Douce, recently translated into English as A Perfect Nanny. If you live in Brooklyn, Slimani will also be talking about A Perfect Nanny at Community Bookstore on April 17th.
