Winter Park, Florida. On Tuesday, March 13th at 6:15 pm, Writer’s Block Bookstore will host novelist Erin Stalcup and writer Justin Bigos for a reading of prose and poetry. Erin Stalcup will be talking about her newest book, Every Living Species, and Justin Bigos will be reading selections of his work. This event is FREE and open to the public.

About the books: In Every Living Species, Erin Stalcup “looks zoological impoverishment in the eye and refuses to blink.” A stunning work of eco-fiction, Every Living Species examines biotechnology, infrastructure, art, and humanity in a “generous and heartfelt imagining of future possibilities.” Every Living Species is Erin Stalcup’s first novel.

Justin Bigos’s poems “are astonishing and unforgettable.” Mad River offers “a kind of prayer, drawing us into the jurisdiction of the wounded father as witnessed, grieved, and integrated by the lost son.” Bigos’s voice is “ecstatic, cathartic, troubling, and blessed—monumental, memorial, and alive!” Mad River is Justin Bigo’s second collection of poetry.

About the authors: Erin holds an MFA from the Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College. After teaching in universities, community colleges, and prisons in New York City, North Carolina, and Texas, she now teaches creative writing at her alma mater Northern Arizona University, in her hometown of Flagstaff. Erin co-founded and co-edits the literary magazine Waxwing.

Justin Bigos is the author of a previous collection of poems, the chapbook Twenty Thousand Pigeons. His writing has appeared in publications including Ploughshares, New England Review, Indiana Review, Forklift Ohio, McSweeney’s Quarterly, and The Best American Short Stories 2015. He cofounded and coedits the literary journal Waxwing and makes his home in Flagstaff, Arizona, where he teaches at Northern Arizona University.
