Deborah Landau & Rachel Zucker

Deborah Landau’s Soft Targets (Copper Canyon Press, 2019) and Rachel Zucker’s SoundMachine (Wave Books, 2019) are defiant, vulnerable maps to guide us through the daily work of living through the political despair and global crisis that generate threat both remote and intimate. These writers stage friendships and familial kinship as potential sites for gathering and intervention against the undeniable dystopia of the present.

Join us for an evening of piercing readings by Deborah Landau and Rachel Zucker. Rachel Zucker is the author of nine books, most recently, The Pedestrians (Wave Books, 2014) and MOTHERs (Counterpath Press, 2013). She was honored to write the foreword to Wait Till I’m Dead, Uncollected Poems by Allen Ginsberg. Zucker is the host of the podcast Commonplace: Conversations with Poets (and Other People). Deborah Landau is the author of four books of poetry. She was educated at Stanford, Columbia, and Brown, where she earned her PhD. She is a professor and director of the Creative Writing Program at New York University, and lives in Brooklyn with her husband, sons, and daughter.
