About the Event
Folio is excited to welcome the award-winning, best-selling author David Guterson, to discuss his new novel The Final Case. For this memorable evening celebrating a Northwest literary icon David will be in conversation with Folio’s founder, David Brewster, in-person at the historic Pike Place Market.
The evening promises to be a deep delve into Guterson’s writing life, from his experience with a runaway best selling debut novel to the one he is currently writing. His latest novel The Final Case, is a bracing, astute, and deeply affecting examination of justice and injustice—and familial love. 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, it is his most compelling and heartfelt novel to date.
“Guterson is probably the finest of Seattle novelists. He specializes in novels that weave together two plots and his celebrated eye for detail is evident on page after page.” - David Brewster
