Actor and author Jesse Eisenberg talks insufferable sisters and playing Horse with Carmelo Anthony, memoirist Sloane Crosley compares her latest book to The Goonies and indie sweetheart Laura Gibson changes genres. Three times.

Jesse Eisenberg
In addition to having cornered the market on playing charming nerds in blockbusters, actor Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, The Social Network) has published three plays, multiple New Yorker pieces and has now released a book of short stories, Bream Gives Me Hiccups, taking readers from modern L.A. to ancient Pompeii.

Sloane Crosley
An essayist, editor and all-around literary supahstar, I Was Told There'd Be Cake author Sloane Crosley is known for her hilarious and poignant essays. Her upcoming first novel, The Clasp, is already receiving high praise.

Laura Gibson
Do you love Tiny Desk Concerts? You can thank Laura Gibson for that, as her beautiful, lilting and quietly powerful voice was the one that inspired NPR to start them. Laura's produced four solo records and her last collaboration was a musical, Up the Fall.
