Wine and Conversation with David James Poissant

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on June 4, 2015


From 6pm-8pm on Thursday, June 18, join Writer’s Block for wine and conversation with David James Poissant, author of The Heaven of Animals, at Writer’s Block Bookstore (124 E Welbourne Ave, Winter Park).

In each of the stories in this remarkable debut, award-winning writer David James Poissant explores the tenuous bonds of family—fathers and sons, husbands and wives—as they are tested by the sometimes brutal power of love. His strikingly true-to-life characters have reached a precipice, chased there by troubles of their own making. Standing at the brink, each must make a choice: Leap, or look away? Pulitzer Prize finalist Lee Martin writes that Poissant forces us “to face the people we are when we’re alone in the dark.”
