New York, NY: April 20 – Don DeLillo, author of the critically-acclaimed novels Underworld, White Noise and Libra, among many others, visits 92nd Street Y’s Poetry Center on Monday, May 2 at 8 PM to read from his new book, Zero K (May 3, Simon & Schuster). It’s his only New York reading.
According to the publisher, Zero K is “the wisest, richest, funniest, and most moving novel in years from Don DeLillo, one of the great American novelists of our time—an ode to language, at the heart of our humanity, a meditation on death, and an embrace of life.”
Dana Spiotta, one of DeLillo’s favorite writers, joins him at 92Y. She reads from her new novel, Innocents and Others, “a brilliant, riddling clip-montage of the friendship between two very different filmmakers,” wrote Josh Cohen in The New York Times Book Review.
Following their respective readings, the authors will appear together for an on-stage conversation. They will also sign books following the event.
