Reading with Robert Lopez and Sam Ligon

Thursday, June 29, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Robert Lopez is a poetry, fiction, and short story author whose work has appeared such literary journals as The Threepenny Review and The Mississippi Review. His latest collection of short stories, Good People, queries the dichotomous relationship between good and bad. What does it mean to be a good person, and who is to judge? The narrators in his short stories do not sugar coat their truths as we peek into their lives, and readers are left wondering what, exactly, defines human morals.

Sam Ligon teaches creative writing at EWU, and is author of several notable titles, including Wonderland, Among the Dead and Dreaming, and Safe in Heaven Dead. In addition to teaching, Sam is an editor for the "Willow Springs" journal and the Artistic Director of the Port Townsent Writers' Conference.

"Wonderland is a fantastic collection of stories. Sam Ligon has mastered the art of capturing the sweet derangement of love. His characters are drunk with desire and reckless in all the right ways, and his prose is incandescent, absurd, wickedly funny and, in the end, achingly true."--Steve Almond, Entropy
