Idra Novey discusses and signs TAKE WHAT YOU NEED with Maud Newton


About this Event

Please join us here at Barnes & Noble Atlantic Ave in welcoming author Idra Novey in conversation with Maud Newton presenting Take What You Need. Call in to reserve your copy prior to the event date - books will also be available for purchase the day of the event.

Take What You Need explores the continuing mystery of the people we love most with passion and resonance, illuminating what can be built from what others have discarded—art, unexpected friendship, a new contentment of self. This is Idra Novey at her very best.

Idra Novey is the award-winning author of the novels Ways to Disappear and Those Who Knew. Her work has been translated into a dozen languages and she’s written for The Atlantic, The New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times. She teaches fiction at Princeton University and in the MFA Program at New York University.

Maud Newton is a writer and editor. Her book, Ancestor Trouble: A Reckoning and a Reconciliation (Random House, 2022) was named a best book of the year by The New Yorker, NPR, the Washington Post, Time, Esquire, Garden & Gun, and Entertainment Weekly, and was a New York Times Editors’ Choice selection, a Roxane Gay Book Club pick, and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle’s John Leonard Prize for a first book in any genre. Her recent bylines include the Washington Post, Slate, the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, the Guardian, Esquire, the Wall Street Journal, Time, and Harper’s Bazaar. Newton has discussed her family history, and the importance of individuals acknowledging ancestors’ complicity in larger cultural harms, with NPR’s All Things Considered, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, WNYC, and UC Davis Jewish Studies/Religious Studies. In addition to nonfiction, Newton writes fiction and cultural criticism. She received the Narrative Prize and City College’s Irwin and Alice Stark Short Fiction Prize, both for fiction, and has been a Yaddo resident. She was born in Dallas and raised in Miami, and lives in New York City.
