Author Joseph Rein: Roads Without Houses

Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Kimberly Public Library

Joseph Rein, a Kimberly High School graduate (class of 2001), will read from his new short story collection,Roads without Houses. He will also discuss his path to becoming a published fiction writer, screenwriter, and professor of creative writing. A book signing will follow. 

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.
