Co-presented with the Northwest African American Museum.

We are delighted to help present this evening with two of the Pacific Northwest’s most esteemed, and widely recognized authors, Charles Johnson and David Guterson. The occasion is publication of Charles Johnson’s welcome new book on writing, The Way of the Writer: Reflections on the Art and Craft of Storytelling (Scribner Books), an art and craft the National Book Award-winning writer and teacher has been putting into published practice for nearly forty years. His many novels include Middle Passage, Faith and the Good Thing, Oxherding Tale, and Dreamer. Dr. Johnson has also appeared previously at the Northwest African American Museum for his other recent books, Taming the Ox and The Words and Wisdom of Charles Johnson. Charles Johnson will appear in conversation with Robin Lindley, an editor at the History News Network.

“Those of us who put pen to paper for a living have known of Charles Johnson for a very long time. He is one of America’s greatest literary treasures. He is a skilled wordsmith, superb craftsman, master of understatement, philosopher, cartoonist, and deeply talented novelist … Here he graciously opens up the treasure chest of writing secrets and philosophy for those of us to seek to kneel at the tree of learning, told by a man who has kissed the black stone of literary excellence.” - James McBride

“If you’re looking to learn to tell stories in written form, look no further. This book is as accessible as it is profound, lively, practical, and full of earned wisdom. I was a student of Charles Johnson’s and can vouch for the power and value of his teaching.” - David Guterson
