Roads without Houses with Author Joseph Rein at East

Saturday, March 24, 2018 - 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM

Audience: Adults

Categories: Author/Storyteller

Roads without Houses contains fifteen loosely-linked stories set across varying landscapes of the upper Midwest, from metropolitan Milwaukee and St. Paul to the deep Northwoods of Wisconsin. Coping with issues from broken relationships to loss to eating disorders, the characters all struggle to escape the wrong fork of life's path. Their attempts to reconcile their flaws, within themselves and to each other, push each to the boundaries of what makes us all painfully, unmistakably human.   Joseph Rein is a Wisconsin native and a graduate of the UWM Creative Writing Program (Ph.D., 2012). His short stories, poems, and essays have appeared in over twenty journals and anthologies worldwide, and have been nominated for numerous awards. He is also an accomplished screenwriter and critical essayist. He is currently an Associate Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, where he lives with his wife and four children.
