Roads Without Houses: Writing Wisconsin-Based Fiction
October 12, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am CDT
A native of Kimberly, Wisconsin, Joseph Rein writes stories that always gravitate toward home. Rein is the author of <em>Roads without Houses</em> (Press 53, 2018). The collection contains 15 loosely linked stories set across varying landscapes of the upper Midwest, from metropolitan Milwaukee 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. In this presentation, Rein will discuss the various challenges and rewards when writing about such a familiar landscape.
