For the past two-and-a-half decades, Conjunctions, the literary journal edited by Bradford Morrow and published by Bard College, has been at the forefront of innovative fiction, poetry, drama, and essays, written by some of the most exciting writers of the day.

On Thursday, December 7, at 6:30 p.m. the Fales Collection of New York University, which is nationally known for documenting the developments in cutting-edge literature, will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Conjunctions with a reading by: Paul Auster, Martine Bellen, Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge, Forrest Gander, Siri Hustvedt, Ann Lauterbach, Howard Norman, Donald Revell, Peter Straub, Frederic Tuten, and C.D. Wright. The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place at NYU’s Fales Collection, 3rd floor of the Bobst Library, 70 Washington Square South. For further information, call 212.992.9018.

Conjunctions was originally planned as a single volume festschrift in honor of New Directions publisher James Laughlin; it quickly expanded into a semi-annual publication. From the Robert Creeley poem that opened the first volume to the unproduced film scenarios by the Brothers Quay that close the most recent one (over 15,000 pages later), Conjunctions has remained committed to literature willing to take chances.

Several contributors to Conjunctions, including Kathy Acker, Walter Abish, William S. Burroughs, Gary Indiana, and Lynne Tillman, are central to Fales’ Downtown Collection; many others are included in the general Fales Collection which documents the development of prose narrative from the 18th century to the present.
