Lydia Millet, Matthew Salesses, Jennifer Maritza McCauley coming to Unbound

An ongoing, annual joy for Columbia book lovers is watching the Unbound Book Festival lineup gradually expand one author at a time. The festival, which returns to downtown Columbia 20-23 April, has begun its literature build-up, adding three names to its previous main announcement.

Novelist Lydia Millet and multi-discipline authors Matthew Salesses and Jennifer Maritza McCauley have joined lead poets Ross Gay and Patrick Rosal on the 2023 list in recent weeks.

Millet’s latest, “Dinosaurs,” hit the shelves this year and is an extraordinary work. The book begins as a travelogue, following its heartwarming protagonist, Gil, as he leaves his life in New York and walks all the way to his new home in Arizona.

However, “Dinosaurs” proves that the destination itself can be an unexpected journey, and focuses on the society Gil embeds himself into upon arrival; the book examines how and why we connect and the beautiful, subtle effects our lives can leave.
