Jonathan Wells

January 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Acclaimed poet and memoirist Jonathan Wells will read from his first work of fiction, The Sterns are Listening. “In The Sterns Are Listening, Jonathan Wells gives us a touching, beautifully observed and very funny portrait of a 21st century Manhattan family sliding slowly down the American dream. Benjamin Stern’s wife is turning Italian, his teenage son is coming out of a forced exile, and his brother is trying to enlist him in a scheme to market flashy hearing aids to aging rock n roll fans.  If you ever wondered what became of the next generation of Glasses and Angstroms, listen to The Sterns.” —Bill Flanagan

Jonathan Wells is the author of the memoir The Skinny and three collections of poems: DebrisThe Man with Many Pens, and Train Dance. His poems have been published in The New YorkerThe New RepublicAGNI and the Bennington Review.
