About The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2019

An eclectic collection of fiction, essays, poetry, and graphic work selected by high school students with the help of New York Times best-selling author Edan Lepucki. 

Over the past year, fifteen Bay Area high school students have gathered each week in the basement of an independent publishing house to pore over online and print literary journals, magazines, books, plays, and graphic novels. They read things they couldn’t shake and engaged in deep conversations about how good writing brings people together, no matter what else is happening around the world. With the help of New York Times best-selling author Edan Lepucki they have compiled The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2019.

Keith Donnell received his MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University and his MA in English from the University of Southern California. His work has appeared in journals, including Redivider, New American Writing, LUMINA and Puerto Del Sol's Black Voices Series. He was the 2017-2018 Editor-in-Chief of Fourteen Hills: The SFSU Review.

Maddy Raskulinecz lives in San Francisco, CA. Her fiction has appeared in ZYZZYVA, Guernica, Joyland, DIAGRAM, and elsewhere, and has been included in Wigleaf's Top 50 Very Short Fictions. She holds an MFA from Johns Hopkins University.
