Coach House Books' spring author, Rachel Zolf, will read at Just Buffalo's Small Press Series. Her new book, "Human Resources," meshes corporate language and poetry to counter the depletion of language and meaning by 21st-century business-speak. She will be joined by Canadian poet Sharon Harris, author of "Avatar," and Tom Mandel, author of "To the Cognoscenti, The Grand Piano."
