  • Alexander McCall Smith - author of the the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Series.
  • Joseph Stiglitz - 2001 Nobel Prize winner in economics for Globalization and Its Discontinents.
  • Janet Fitch - author of White Oleander.
  • Frank Rich - New York Times columnist and Bush-phobe.
Anjelica Huston will also be making an appearance to introduce Irish novelist Edna O'Brien. For a complete list, check the ALOUD website.
