STEPHEN MARKLEY: EVENINGS WITH AUTHORS

  • Columbus Museum of Art 480 East Broad Street Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)
Ohio

Stephen Markley launches the Fall 2018 Evenings With Authors Series with his debut novel, Ohio. Markley is a screenwriter, journalist, and graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. In Ohio, a generation has come of age knowing only war, recession, political gridlock, racial hostility, and a simmering fear of environmental calamity. Foreclosures, Walmarts, and opiates riddle the land, and death rates for rural whites have skyrocketed, fueled by suicide, addiction, and a rampant sense of marginalization and disillusionment. This is the world the characters in Markley’s novel inherit. Set in the fictional northeast Ohio community of New Canaan, Ohio takes place on a single night in 2015 when four former classmates return to their hometown, each with a mission, all haunted by the ghosts of their shared histories. Markley also is the author of the non-fiction Publish This Book: The Unbelievable True Story of How I Wrote, Sold, and Published This Very Book and Tales of Iceland.
