The 2013/2014 Inprint Margarett Root Brown Reading Series presents two internationally celebrated literary voices, Daniel Alarcón and Mohsin Hamid.

Peruvian-born, Alarcón's latest novel, At Night We Walk in Circles, was named a Best Book of 2013 by NPR, BookPage and Book Riot. His earlier novel Lost City Radio won the 2009 International Literature Prize, the 2008 PEN USA Novel Award, and was named a Best Book of the Year by the San Francisco Chronicle, Financial Times, The Washington Post and Chicago Tribune. Alarcón's first story collection, War by Candlelight, was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award. In 2010, The New Yorker named him one of the best 20 Writers Under 40, and he has also been named by Granta magazine as one of the best American novelists under 35.

Mohsin Hamid, born in Pakistan, "is one of the most talented and formally audacious writers of his generation," according to The Daily Telegraph. His debut novel, Moth Smoke, became a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award and was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best First Book. His second novel, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, with more than a million copies in print, was named a Book of the Decade by The Guardian, shortlisted for the Man-Booker Prize and made into a feature film. His latest novel, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, which like his other books breaks with convention, has received rave reviews.
