Jonathan Evison

Don't miss this candid conversation with writer Jonathan Evison. 

He is the New York Times best-selling author of seven novels, including Small WorldAll About LuluWest of Here, The Revised Fundamentals of CaregivingThis is Your Life, Harriet Chance!, Legends of the North Cascade, and Lawn Boy – a sharp-eyed, sidesplittingly funny examination of class divides and white privilege on Bainbridge Island. His third novel was adapted into a feature film, The Fundamentals Of Caring, starring Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts. His latest novel, Small World will be out in January 2022.  A Bainbridge Islander since age eight, Johnny worked a number of jobs – landscaper, punk-rock singer, caregiver, radio DJ and telemarketer, among many others – before breaking through at age 40 with his acclaimed debut, All About Lulu. Iconic Pacific Northwest author Sherman Alexie has called him "the most honest white man alive." 

Inside the Writers House invites you into the homes, offices, and writing rooms of acclaimed authors, providing an inside eye on their working life and a level of intimacy often lacking in more formal settings. An obvious reference to the televised Actor's Studio seminar, "Writers House" interviews are likewise craft focused, but strive for an earthy spontaneity unencumbered by prepared queries and index card cues. Visits are conversational and plastic, largely molded by (and dependent on) audience questions. In addition to the conversation, most visits include short readings, writing prompts, show-and-tell sessions, and house/apt tours. Chances are you'll meet their pets (and look inside their refrigerators).
