Best Author


Even as his writing has accumulated national acclaim, Jess Walter has continued to champion his hometown. Beyond setting many stories in the Lilac City, Walter has offered his support to a variety of community and literary programs as well. Spokane native Tom Giardino writes of Walter: "His prose is simple, direct, and true, and he has a funny way of telling us things we already know about ourselves. He's not just the best local author — he's one of the best American authors." (JJ)
