Joseph Scapellato fiction reading

Joseph Scapellato fiction reading

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 7:00 pm

Joseph Scapellato will give a public reading from his book of short stories "Big Lonesome." Reinventing a great American tradition through an absurdist, discerning eye, Scapellato uses these stories to conjure worlds, themes and characters who are at once unquestionably familiar and undeniably strange. "Big Lonesome" navigates through the American West—from the Old West to the modern-day West to the Midwest, from cowboys to mythical creatures to everything in between—exploring place, myth, masculinity and what it means to be whole or to be broken.
