Jim Lynch - Pacific Northwest journalist and prolific novelist. Jim's books capture the manic regionalism of a good Tom Robbins story, and his investigative eye captures the beauty and corruption of modern life. His most recent book Truth Like the Sun, set in Seattle during the 1962 World's Fair, hits the bookstores on April 10.

Wendy McClure - Author of The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie. Her essays have appeared in the The New York Times Magazine, The Chicago Sun-Times, and in a number of anthologies, including Love Is A Four-Letter Word (Plume), Feed Me (Ballantine) and Sleepaway: Writings on Summer Camp (Riverhead).

Musical guest - Black Prairie - Americana from an ensemble of high profile Portland musicians, including three-fifths of The Decemberists. They recently scored the latest play by Oregon Children's Theater, A Storm in the Barn.
