Bruce Holbert in Conversation With Lance Weller

We are so pleased to welcome Bruce Holbert in support of his new novel, Whiskey, on Tuesday March 20 at 7:00 PM. Holbert will be joined in conversation by Lance Weller, author of The Wilderness

Whiskey is the story of two brothers, their parents, and three wrecked marriages, a searching book about family life at its most distressed--about kinship, failure, enough liquor to get through it all, and ultimately a dark and hard-earned grace. With the gruff humor of Cormac McCarthy and a dash of the madcap irony of Charles Portis, and a strong, authentic literary voice all his own, Bruce Holbert traverses the harsh landscape of America's northwestern border and finds a family unlike any you've met before.

Bruce Holbert is a graduate of the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop. His work has appeared in The Iowa Review, Hotel Amerika, Other Voices, The Antioch Review, Crab Creek Review, and The New York Times. He grew up on the Columbia River and in the shadow of the Grand Coulee Dam. His great-grandfather was an Indian scout and among the first settlers of the Grand Coulee. Holbert is the author of The Hour of Lead, winner of the Washington State Book Award, and Lonesome Animals.

Lance Weller is the author of the critically-acclaimed debut novel WILDERNESS which has been published in English (Bloomsbury 2012), French (Editions Gallmeister 2013) and Italian (Keller Editore 2016).  WILDERNESS was longlisted for the prestigious French literary award the Prix Médicis and was a 2014 Washington State Book Award finalist. Lance's second novel, AMERICAN MARCHLANDS, published by Editions Gallmeister in March 2017 has received glowing reviews.
