Join us as we celebrate the release of two new books of short stories. Jay Wexler is a professor of law at BU and the author of Holy Hullabaloos and The Odd Clauses. In The Adventures of Ed Tuttle, Associate Justice, and Other Stories, he takes us to strange worlds where zoos stock only black and white animals, Supreme Court Justices are confirmed by the 1977 Kansas City Royals, and National Parks mascots practice kung fu.
Mike Heppner is a professor of writing at Emerson and the author of The Egg Code and Pike's Folly. His new collection, The Man Talking Project, explores what inspires, torments, and sometimes kills the devoted artist. Among those you will meet include a beginning writer is so anxious to write something that she's dying from lack of sleep and a ten-year old boy receives a lecture on the folly of taking praise to heart.
