Looking Forward, Looking Back

September 2, 2023

Whether it’s due to growing up celebrating the Jewish New Year or from living in New York where September brings a deluge of exciting new cultural events, Labor Day always carries with it a frisson of positive anticipation. We launch our fall season at The Center celebrating a debut novel that also welcomes an actor-turned-publisher to our stage; a Dickensian novel set in the 1800s; fiction inspired by an obsession with Melville’s genius; and two novels about the Arab American experience.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
Buyer, The Center for Fiction Bookstore
