Solmaz Sharif // Cornell Zalaznick Reading Series

Buffalo Street Books is proud to partner with Cornell University's Department of Literatures in English to provide book sales for the Fall 2022 Zalaznick Reading Series.

The Fall 2022 Barbara & David Zalaznick Reading Series, beginning Sept. 8, will feature acclaimed writers from around the world. The series, hosted by Cornell’s Creative Writing Program in the College of Arts and Sciences, brings innovative, award-winning authors to read from their work on Cornell’s Ithaca campus.

All readings are free and open to the public, and take place on Thursdays at 5 p.m. in Rhodes-Rawlings Auditorium, G70 Klarman Hall. Each event closes with a live Q&A and is followed by a book signing with books for purchase on-site from Buffalo Street Books.

On September 29, poet Solmaz Sharif will read from her work. Born in Istanbul to Iranian parents, Sharif is the author of two poetry collections, “Look,” finalist for the National Book Award, and “Customs.” Her work has appeared in Harper’s, The Paris Review, Poetry, The Kenyon Review, the New York Times, and has been recognized with a “Discovery”/Boston Review Poetry Prize, Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award and Holmes National Poetry Prize from Princeton University. She has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, Lannan Foundation, and Stanford University.
