“For this issue of ‘Whitefish Review,’ we focused on the power of story,” said founding editor Brian Schott. “The stories we tell ourselves, both as individuals and as a society and how that shapes us as human beings.”

Rick Bass is the author of more than 30 books of fiction and nonfiction. His newest book is “The Traveling Feast: On the Road and at the Table with America’s Finest Writers.”

William Kittredge taught at the University of Montana from 1969 until his retirement in 1997. His publications include stories and essays from Graywolf Press, “Hole in the Sky” from Knopf, and his share of the credit for “The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology.”

Annick Smith’s most recent book is “Crossing the Plains with Bruno” and she was co-editor with William Kittredge of “The Last Best Place.” Most recently, Smith and Susan O’Connor were co-editors of H”EARTH, A Global Conversation on Community, Identity and Place,” to be published this September.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with live music. The evening is sponsored by the Whitefish Community Foundation, Glacier Bank, and Good Medicine Lodge. A $10 entry donation is suggested to support the nonprofit journal.
