15 Bytes Read Local Series Presents Joe Totten and Michael Gills
Sep 28, 2017, 7:00 pm
The Finch Gallery series pairs emerging local writers with established writers for a reading and discussion of their work. This event will feature Joe Totten and Michael Gills.
Joe Totten is the first place winner of the short story category in the 2016 Utah Original Writing Competition for “The Starling Killers.” A professional writer for more than twenty years, Totten helped create advertising campaigns for companies, including Intel, Microsoft, 3M, Verizon and General Motors, among others. He is currently at work on a novel about the American West, not the one that has been over-mythologized for the past hundred years, but the Real West of greed and crime and casual bloodshed. The novel explores the existential violence and darkness at the heart of the American character--the brutal passions and animosities that churn just beneath the surface of our national psyche. Totten lives in Midway, Utah with his wife.
Michael Gills is author of three collections of short fiction, including The House Across From the Deaf School (Texas Review Press, 2016)l, two novels, including Emergency Instructions, and the visionary memoir White Indians, both published by Raw Dog Screaming Press in 2017 and 2013, respectively. Part two of White Indians is forthcoming. He is Associate Professor/Lecturer of Writing for the Honors College at the University of Utah. Gills’ collected papers are archived at Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
