National Books Foundation Celebrates 5 Under 35

May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us to celebrate the debut works of Antonia Angress (Sirens & Muses), Maya Binyam (Hangman), Zain Khalid (Brother Alive), Tyriek White (We Are a Haunting), and Jenny Tinghui Zhang (Four Treasures of the Sky). The evening will include remarks and readings, hosted by Emmy-nominated comedian and writer Karen Chee.

The honorees will be introduced on stage by their selectors—five literary luminaries previously honored by the National Book Foundation: Charles Baxter, Adam Johnson, Laila Lalami, Alejandro Varela, and Tiphanie Yanique. Read more about this year’s honorees and selectors here.

The National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 program is supported by Amazon Literary Partnership. The 2024 5 Under 35 Ceremony is presented in partnership with Books Are Magic, St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, and the National Book Foundation.
