The Year in Books 2016: New School Faculty

From being against everything to being for our retirement accounts, The New School’s faculty authors covered a lot of ground — and a lot of book shelves — this year. Faculty members collectively published 40-plus books in 2016, including full-length poetry collections, novels and novellas, short story collections, and books for young adult readers, as well as anthologies and critical studies. New School alumni authors were prolific as well.

The following is a list of books by faculty members released in 2016. It will continue to updated as more titles are submitted for inclusion (please email
