ZYZZYVA Winter Issue Celebration
Tuesday, December 5, 2017, 7:00 p.m., City Lights Booksellers, 261 Columbus Avenue, San Francisco

Celebrating the 111th issue of America's premier literary journal.

For its newest issue, ZYZZYVA features a special section of writers and poets exploring the theme of art and resistance in times of turmoil. Winter Issue contributor T.J. Stiles and recent contributor Caille Millner will be in conversation with Oscar Villalon as they look at what it is exactly we must be in resistance against, and what forms does that resistance take.

T.J. Stiles received the Pulitzer Prize for History for Custer's Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New
America (Knopf), and a Pulitzer Prize for Biography and a National Book Award for Nonfiction for
The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt (Knopf).

Caille Millner is the author of The Golden Road: Notes on my Gentrification (Penguin Press). Her short fiction has appeared in Zyzzyva and Joyland, and Best American Short Stories 2016. Her essays have been in Michigan Quarterly Review, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and other publications.

Oscar Villalon is the managing editor at ZYZZYVA.

The Zyzzyva publishing history is as illustrious as it is groundbreaking. This is the journal that first published Jim Gavin and Jill Soloway, F.X. Toole and Po Bronson—and introduced American readers to Haruki Murakami (in issue No. 13). Their list of contributors includes, among many others, Peter Orner, Kay Ryan, David Guterson, Tom Bissell, Tatjana Soli, Ron Carlson, Luis Alberto Urrea, Amy Hempel, D.A. Powell, Matthew Dickman, Herbert Gold, Daniel Sada, Adam Johnson, Karl Taro Greenfeld, Sandow Birk, Richard Misrach, Aimee Bender, Diego Enrique Osorno, Sherman Alexie, Daniel Handler, Adrienne Rich, Robert Hass, Czeslaw Milosz, Wanda Coleman, Raymond Carver, Tom Barbash, William T. Vollmann, Dagoberto Gilb, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ed Ruscha, Richard Diebenkorn, Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Creeley, and M.F.K. Fisher.

Every issue is a vibrant mix of established talents and new voices, providing an elegantly curated overview of contemporary arts and letters with a distinctly San Francisco perspective.
