The BARN Writers’ Studio is delighted to host an evening with New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Evison in conversation with best-selling author Megan Chance. In Small World, Evison chronicles 170 years of American nation-building at a fullhearted, full-throttle pace that asks on the most human, intimate scale whether it is truly possible to meet, and survive, the choices posed—and forced—by an age.
Jonathan Evison is the New York Times Bestselling author of seven novels, most recently Small World, which Booklist called "a masterpiece...the quintessential Great American Novel," and the Christian Science Monitor called "a modern classic." Sherman Alexie has called Evison "the most honest white man alive." He lives with his family on Bainbridge Island.
Megan Chance is the best-selling, critically acclaimed author of several novels. Her novel Bone River was an Amazon Book of the Month, A Drop of Ink was an Editors' Choice of the Historical Novel Society, and An Inconvenient Wife was an IndieNext pick. In addition to her historical fiction novels, Chance is the author of the young adult Fianna Trilogy, short stories, and eight historical romance novels. Her novels have been translated into several different languages. She is also a popular workshop speaker whose speaking credits include the Pacific Northwest Writers Conference, Romance Writers of America National Conference, Edmonds Write on the Sound Conference, the Seattle Assistance League, Timberland Regional Libraries, and many others.
