MFA alumnus John W. Evans’ memoir, Young Widower, winner of the River Teeth Literary Nonfiction Book Prize, has just been published by the University of Nebraska Press. Booklist praises “the unfolding and cathartic grieving process that underpins and elevates this heartbreaking tale.” You can read an adapted excerpt from the book published by Slate.

Evans’ poetry collection, Consolations, will be published by Trio House Press in March 2014, and he’ll be signing advance copies of it at the AWP in Seattle. Since completing his MFA at FIU, Evans has been a Stegner Fellow in Poetry and a Jones Lecturer at Stanford University, where he continues to teach creative writing.
