Rebecca’s new novel Hex—excerpted in BOMB #151—follows Nell Barber, an expelled PhD candidate studying botanical toxins and antidotes until a tragedy shuts down her lab at Columbia. After retreating to Red Hook, Nell finds work at a bar as she continues to cultivate deadly plants and an obsession with her former mentor. Hex will be released from Viking on March 31 and is available for pre-order. Read an excerpt from Hex here. 

Rebecca will be joined in conversation by Julie Buntin, whose debut novel, Marlena, was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle’s John Leonard Prize.
