VJ Books Presents Author David Guterson!

Author David GutersonDavid Guterson was born in Seattle, Washington on May 4, 1956 . He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Washington. He is also a Guggenheim Fellow.

Guterson is a writer of novels, short stories, poetry, articles, and essays, but before writing professionally he worked for ten years as a high school teacher. It was during his teaching career that Guterson began to publish stories and essays in small magazines and periodicals. His first book, The Country Ahead of Us, the Country Behind (1989) is a collection of short stories, largely set in the Pacific Northwest. His second book, Family Matters: Why Homeschooling Makes Sense (1992) is a non-fiction collection of essays on family and education. He is perhaps best known, however for his novel Snow Falling on Cedars (1994), which earned him the 1995 PEN/Faulkner Award, and was adapted to the screen in 1999.

Guterson has five children and currently lives with his wife, Robin, on Bainbridge Island.
