The release of The Final Case, the latest novel by David Guterson, one of Bainbridge's brightest luminaries, is the occassion for this celebration, set to be held in the auditorium at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art at 6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 23 and featuring the author himself in conversation with special guest John Willson.
From the award-winning, best-selling author of Snow Falling on Cedars—a moving father-son story that is also a taut courtroom drama and a bold examination of privilege, power, and how to live a meaningful life.
Appearing in conversation with the author is John Willson, Bookseller Emeritus at Eagle Harbor Book Co., author of the poetry collection Call This Room a Station and winner of the Island Treasure Award. One of his first published works was awarded the Pushcart Prize, and he has been honored subsequently by many other organizations including the Academy of American Poets, the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference, and Artist Trust of Washington.
