Join us for an evening with Ethan Rutherford and his new book, The Peripatetic Coffin: And Other Short Stories at Dragonfly Books on Thursday, June 27 at 7:00 pm.
Alternately funny, menacing, and deeply empathetic, the wildly inventive stories in Ethan Rutherford’s The Peripatetic Coffin mark the debut of a powerful new voice in contemporary fiction. Ranging in settings from the doomed first Confederate submarine, to a futuristic whaling expedition, to a suburban basement, Rutherford’s stories explore the ways in which we experience the world: as it is, as it could be, and the dark contours that lie between. Writer, musician, husband, and new father, Rutherford’s stories - both life and written - are sure to entertain. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet one of the next great fiction writers.
