Part 4: Elizabeth Silver

Elizabeth L. Silver is the author of The Tincture of Time: A Memoir of (Medical) Uncertainty, and Amazon Best Book of the Year The Execution of Noa P. Singleton. Her work has been called “masterful” by The Wall Street Journal, has been published in 7 languages, and optioned for film. The Tincture of Time was featured on PBS and NPR, and was an O Magazine/Oprah’s “Ten Books to Pick up Now.” 

Her new novel, The Majority, is a riveting novel of love and friendship, motherhood and ambition, and one woman’s fight to be a Supreme Court justice. Covering the span of fifty years, Justice Sylvia Olin Bernstein’s personal account reveals the intimate truth about a woman who is not just a brilliant mind but a daughter, a best friend, a wife, and a mother. Caught in a tug-of-war between career and family, truth and convenience, progress and patience, she will be given a chance to change the course of American history.

Part 5: Jesse Leon

Jesse Leon is a social impact consultant to foundations, impact investors, non-profits, and real estate developers on ways to address issues of substance abuse, affordable housing, and educational opportunities for at-risk youth. Since receiving a master’s degree from the Harvard Kennedy School, Jesse has managed multi-million dollar philanthropic grantmaking for various foundations and banking institutions, managed over $1B in public sector investments for affordable housing, and built thousands of units of mixed-income housing as a real estate developer for Bank of America.

Jesse’s unforgettable memoir, I’m Not Broken, is an inspirational portrait of one young man’s indomitable strength and spirit to survive—against all possible odds. “A book for survivors and those who know someone they hope survives, bodhisattvas all.”

 

Part 6: Madhushree Ghosh

Madhushree Ghosh has written prolifically on how food—especially South Asian food—travels globally though immigration, migration and indenture. As the daughter of refugees and an immigrant to America, food stories inform her about the history of her people, how they traveled and what happened to them when they held onto recipes, let go or modified them over countries, continents and generations. Her work has been a Notable Mention in Best American Essays in Food Writing, Pushcart nominated and published in The New York Times, Vogue India, Washington Post, LA Times, The Writer, Longreads, Catapult, BOMB, Guernica, LA Review of Books, LitHub and others. She is an invited workshop leader at conferences and workshops such as Grub Street Writers, Encinitas Writers Workshop, San Diego Memoir Writers’ Workshop and others.

Her debut food narrative memoir,, was published in 2022 by the University of Iowa Press to great acclaim. KHABAAR focuses on chefs, home cooks, and food stall owners, and the author’s own immigrant journey as the daughter of refugees, questioning what it means to belong and what does “belonging” in a new place look like in the foods carried over from the old country.

 

Part 7: Mona Gable

Mona Gable is a freelance writer based in Los Angeles. Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, Outside, AFAR, the Los Angeles Times, and many others. Her article in Los Angeles magazine, “The Hugo Problem,” was named a Longreads Best of 2015. Since 1990, she has written about social issues, culture, and politics for the Los Angeles Times. Gable grew up in San Diego, California, and is a graduate of UC Berkeley. Her memoir, “Blood Brother: The Gene That Rocked My Family,” was published in 2014 by Shebooks.

Her new novel, Searching for Savanna, arose out of a story she wrote for the late Pacific Standard magazine. It is a gripping and illuminating investigation into the disappearance of Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind when she was eight months pregnant, highlighting the shocking epidemic of violence against Native women in America and the societal ramifications of government inaction.
