The third list of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists will be announced on April 26; join them as they host a panel of the most recent Best Young American Novelists.

The last issue was published in 2007 and featured an extraordinary selection of young writers: Kevin Brockmeier, Anthony Doerr, Jonathan Safran Foer, Nicole Krauss, Yiyun Li, Karen Russell, Akhil Sharma and Gary Shteyngart among them.
