The Skirball Cultural Center's An Evening With the National Book Awards, hosted cabaret-style with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, gathers three such past winners and finalists from 2015 and 2016. Moderated by former L.A. Times book critic David Ulin, the program includes readings by winner Robin Coste Lewis (Voyage of the Sable Venus), finalist Viet Thanh Nguyen (Nothing Ever Dies: Vietnam and the Memory of War) and finalist Karan Mahajan (The Association of Small Bombs), as well as a Q&A and book signings.
