Book Culture is dedicated to featuring and promoting all the cool literary events in our neighborhood. In that vein, we have been very excited about the new conversation series organized by Heidi Julavits and Kate Zambreno at Columbia, Art + Life. The next event in the series, featuring Brian Blanchfield in conversation with Kate Zambreno, will take place Tuesday, October 11th at Dodge Hall. In anticipation, we asked Kate Zambreno a few questions about the series.
