“The Mirror People”
by Giovanni De Feo

On July 23rd, we mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of our publishing partnership with Bard College with a gala reading and fundraiser in the Fisher Center’s gorgeous, mirrored Belgian Spiegeltent in upstate New York. Part of Bard’s renowned SummerScape series of the performing arts, the Conjunctions celebration will features readings and discussion by Michael Cunningham, Francine Prose, and our editor, Bradford Morrow. Tickets are available for $25 and up, with discounts for students and seniors. It’s an intimate event and seats are limited, so reserve yours now!

We will read for our fall issue, Conjunctions:65, Sleights of Hand, through the end of this month. We’re looking for fiction, poetry, and essays on the theme of deception—provocative explorations of worlds in which truth is a fragile, elaborate, and mercurial thing. Some deception is evil, some begets magic. Artifice and artistry, subterfuge and camouflage, all the revelatory technologies of deceit are what we hope to explore in this special collection.
