David Guterson, award-winning author of the bestselling novel, Snow Falling on Cedars, will share his life experiences and inspirations of writing. His current work, The Other, is a story of friendship bonded by the mutual love of the outdoors. Winner of the 1995 PEN/Faulkner Award for fiction for his debut novel, Snow Falling on Cedars, Guterson is the author of six books, an essayist, a freelance journalist (mostly environmental issues) and a contributing editor to Harper's magazine.

A former high school English teacher, he has been named a Guggenheim Fellow and served as a judge for the National Book Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award, NEA fiction grants, and O Henry Prize stories. Guterson is a co-founder of Field’s End, an organization for writers in Washington State. He currently resides in Washington State with his family and can be found hiking the Olympic Mountains. A Q&A session, book sale, signing and reception will follow the presentation.
