Amor Towles is the author of Rules of Civility and A Gentleman in Moscow, which have been translated into over fifteen languages. Garnering attention from nearly every literary outlet, A Gentleman in Moscow is now being adapted into a miniseries, directed by Tom Harper and produced by and starring Kenneth Branagh. In September 2018, Towles published A Whimsy of the World, a short story about a young American woman who flees home to jaunt through Europe, in Vogue and GQ. His forthcoming novel, which is set in the 1950s and follows three 18-year-old boys driving across America, is in early stages.  

Michael Krasny is a Professor of English and American Literature and author of the books Off Mike: A Memoir of Talk Radio and Literary Life, Let There Be Laughter, and Spiritual Envy: An Agnostic’s Search. Since 1993, he has been the host of Forum, a news and public affairs interview program produced at KQED Radio.
