In each of the stories in The Heaven of Animals, 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." Join us Monday, October 20 at 7:30 pm to welcome the award-winning writer.
