Idaho author Wallace Swenson is our featured speaker at next week’s Guild meeting. Author of eleven books, Wallace’s latest is a young adult novel, Morgan’s Pasture, which offers a unique perspective on the growth of a boy and the longing of a man for a mythic peaceful pasture, not as a place to live, but as a reason to. Swenson is passionate about writing, and his motto is, To Breathe is to Write. During his presentation he will share his writer’s journey and how his career developed. His program will include a question and answer session with those in attendance.
Wallace lives with his wife Jacquelyn in the small rural Idaho town where he was born and raised and where he continues to pursue his writing career. To read the first two chapters of Morgan’s Pasture and learn more about Wallace, his life and his novels, go to his website http://www.whitecloudliterary.com/ .
