The B List with Bri Lee & Rumaan Alam
Join us online for The B List book club hosted by Bri Lee.
Each month Bri is in conversation with a contemporary author followed by a Q&A session.
Rumaan Alam joins the book club to talk about his suspenseful and provocative third novel, Leave the World Behind. A story of two families, strangers to each other, who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrong.
Bri and Rumaan will discuss how the novel explores the complexities of parenthood, race and class, and explores how our closest bonds are reshaped — and unexpected new ones are forged — in moments of crisis.
Leave the World Behind is currently being made into a feature film.
Rumaan Alam is the author of Leave the World Behind, Rich and Pretty, and That Kind of Mother. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, Elle, New York Magazine, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Wall Street Journal, The Rumpus, Buzzfeed, and elsewhere. He studied at Oberlin College, and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
