GEORGE SAUNDERS

When it comes to writing, George Saunders is a jack of all trades...and a master of all of them. He's an author of essays, novellas, short stories, children's books, and novels. One of those novels just happens to be the Man Booker prize-winning Lincoln in the Bardo, which was called "a masterpiece" by Zadie Smith. He’s wildly accomplished and honestly? We're not even mad about it.

 

JAY LARSON
Jay Larson has become a mainstay of the comedy world. His viral story, "Wrong Number" was featured on This American Life and described by Ira Glass as "perfect comedy, perfect storytelling." With appearances on Comedy Central's The Meltdown,  several late night shows, and his own half hour special – it’s been hard to miss him. But if you did, you can pick up his album, Me Being Me, listen to his podcast The CrabFeast, or see him as the limo driver on David Lynch's Twin Peaks.
 
 
JENNY BRUSO
Jenny Bruso is a self-identified fat, femme, queer, writer and former indoor kid who, in 2012, went on an accidental hike revealing a new life trajectory of healing, self-care and adventure in the outdoors. Through sharing her personal stories and the @UnlikelyHikers Instagram community, she wants to bust up preconceived notions of what an “outdoorsperson” looks like and put a spotlight on diversity, inclusion and representation.
 
 
HORSE FEATHERS
Since 2005, Horse Feathers have been the quintessential indie folk band out of the Northwest. Their latest record is So It Is With Us.
