Estonian author Kai Aareleid tells the saga of a young girl growing up in Soviet Estonia in Burning Cities. Filipina-American author Joanne Ramos raises crucial questions about the trade-offs women will make to fortify the future of those they love in her highly-anticipated debut, The Farm. Debut Spanish author Gabriela Ybarra’s autobiographical, The Dinner Guest, pieces together the kidnapping and murder of her grandfather by terrorists.
