Zero Street Fiction, the LGBTQ+ literary fiction series of the University of Nebraska Press, will celebrate the release of its first novel, FORGET I TOLD YOU THIS by Hilary Zaid. Zaid will sign copies of the book, which is also the inaugural winner of the Barbara DiBernard Prize. We will also celebrate the life of Barbara DiBernard and her contributions to UNL English and LGBTQ+ literature.

“FORGET I TOLD YOU THIS sets our high-tech world of phones and apps vibrating against the beauty and history of pen and ink. Twisty and textured, rich and hyperreal, Hilary Zaid’s world is dense with mysterious invitations. In fact, her novel itself is exactly such an invitation—and I’m very glad I said ‘yes.’”—Robin Sloan, author of Sourdough and the New York Times bestseller MR. PENUMBRA’S 24-HOUR BOOKSTORE

“Hilary Zaid has written a gorgeous delight, lush with things not often seen—a sexy midlife heroine, handmade magic, and love letters both as plot and to a certain time and place in San Francisco. I loved every word.”—Claire McMillan, author of ALCHEMY OF A BLACKBIRD
