Constance Grady is a senior correspondent on the Culture team for Vox, where since 2016 she has covered books, publishing, gender, celebrity analysis, and theater.

The Vox Book Club is linking to to support local and independent booksellers.

This May, the Vox Book Club is reading Sanjena Sathian’s assured and immersive debut novel, Gold Diggers. It’s got alchemy, heists, and diaspora politics, and it’s the kind of book that makes me have a lot of thoughts about Jonathan Lethem’s 2003 novel Fortress of Solitude.

We’ll be talking about the whole thing with Sathian live on Zoom on Wednesday, May 19, at 5 pm Eastern, with audience questions encouraged. We’d love to see you there, so go ahead and RSVP right here. In the meantime, subscribe to the Vox Book Club newsletter to make sure you don’t miss anything, and come back on Friday, May 14 for our on-site discussion.
