Author/Artist Bio

Quintan Ana Wikswo, hailed as "heady, euphoric, singular, surprising" by Publisher's Weekly, and "universal and personal, comforting and jarring, ethereal and earthy" by Electric Literature, has long been active in the collusion and collision of art and social justice. Her conceptually-based interdisciplinary projects integrate her fiction, poetry, memoir, and essay with her original photographs, performance, and video. Her more than 35 projects are published, performed, and exhibited internationally. Her several books include the acclaimed collection of photographs and stories The Hope Of Floating Has Carried Us This Far (Coffee House Press) and the forthcoming novel with photographs A Long Curving Scar Where The Heart Should Be (Stalking Horse Press, 2017). Other work appears in magazines such as Tin House, Guernica, Conjunctions, the Kenyon Review, and Gulf Coast, and as well as in anthologies, artist books, and exhibition catalogues.


The reading took place on Tuesday, October 23, 2 p.m. . in the University Theatre.
