Rikki Ducorent will be in conversation with Mark Haber.

Quiver, a mostly-human astronaut, takes refuge from the monotony of harvesting minerals on remote asteroids by running through a virtual reality called the  Lights, chasing visions of an elusive red-haired beauty. Her high-strung robot  partner, Mic, pilots their Wobble and entertains himself by surfing the records  of the obliterated planet Earth stored on his Swift Wheel for Al Pacino trivia,  recipes for reconstituted sushi, and high fashion trends. But when an accident  destroys their cargo, Quiver and Mic go rogue, setting off on a madcap journey  through outer space toward an idyllic destination: the planet Trafik. 

Rikki Ducornet is a transdisciplinary artist. Her work is animated by an interest in nature, Eros, tyranny and the transcendent capacities of the creative imagination. She is a poet, fiction writer, essayist, and artist, and her fiction has been translated into fifteen languages. Her art has been exhibited internationally,  most recently with Amnesty International’s traveling exhibit I Welcome, focused  on the refugee crisis. She has received numerous fellowships and awards including an Arts and Letters Award from the American Academy of Arts and Let ters, the Bard College Arts and Letters Award, the Prix Guerlain, a Critics’  Choice Award, and the Lannan Literary Award for Fiction. Her novel The Jade  Cabinet was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Mark Haber is the author of the 2019 novel, Reinhardt’s Garden, nominated for the 2020 PEN/Hemingway Award and the forthcoming novel, Saint Sebastian’s Abyss, both from Coffee House Press. He is the operations manager at Brazos Bookstore.
