Lion Rock Reading: Doctor Zach VandeZande

The annual CWU Lion Rock Visiting Writers Series returns this month with novelist and professor Zach VandeZande.

There will be two opportunities to hear from VandeZande on Tuesday, January 24. He will be reading his work at 7:30pm in the Student Union Ballroom. He will also be giving a craft talk titled “Under the Pulled Rug: On Productively Violating the Reader-Author Contract” in Black Hall room 151 at noon that same day. Both events are free and open to the public. His books will be available for sale courtesy of the CWU Wildcat Shop after the 7:30pm event.

VandeZande is known for his novel Apathy and Paying Rent, as well as his forthcoming story collection Lesser American Boys. His fiction has appeared in Ninth Letter, Gettysburg Review, Yemassee, Word Riot, Portland Review, Cutbank, Sundog Literature, Passages North, Beloit, Slice Magazine, Atlas Review, The Adroit Journal, and others.
