Online Event: Kate Zambreno Launches Drifts with Rachel Syme



Tuesday, 7:30 pm EDT May 19, 2020

7:30pm ET / 4:30pm PT

Celebrate the much-anticipated May 19th release of Kate Zambreno’s Drifts, published by Riverhead Books. Zambreno will discuss the book with Rachel Syme of the New Yorker. Zambreno’s first novel in nearly a decade is a ferociously intelligent, deeply funny exploration of ambition, the passage of time, the body, and the creative mind.

“Zambreno’s charm and wit dance off the page. . . . Intimate, fiercely intelligent, and reliably provocative, Drifts is Zambreno at her best.” —Refinery29
