The National Book Foundation’s 5 Under 35 program honors young fiction writers at the beginning of their careers. Every year, five National Book Award Finalists select one promising writer each to recognize at the beginning of National Book Awards week in November; each Honoree is under 35 and has published one novel or short story collection. Previous honorees include Valeria Luiselli, Téa Obreht, ZZ Packer, Karen Russell, Merritt Tierce, Claire Vaye Watkins, and Phil Klay. This year, the 5 Under 35 program finalists are making their way to Miami for an evening of readings with LESLEY NNEKA ARIMAH, HALLE BUTLER, and WEIKE WANG.
