Sun Valley Writers’ Conference

Every year, the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference meets for four days in the summer to talk about the craft of writing and storytelling. Idaho Public Television’s Dialogue program has interviewed several noteworthy attendees, and the interviews are still available to stream online.  To wrap up this fascinating year in books, we’re providing the links to a few interviews and a list (with links to our catalog) of the authors’ most well-known works.  What a great way to “see” authors here in Idaho!
