Join Scott Elliott, Associate Professor of Creative Writing and English, for an afternoon discussion of his latest novel, Temple Grove. Learn about sources for the novel, the process of writing fiction, and hear a few passages from the book. Light refreshments will be served.

Set in Washington's Olympic National Park, Temple Grove is a gripping tale of suspense and a multi-layered novel of place that captures in taut, luminous prose, the traditions that tie people to this powerful landscape and the conflicts that run deep among them. 

Scott Elliott grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. A member of the Whitman faculty since 2004, he was awarded the G. Thomas Edwards Award for Excellence in Teaching and Scholarship in 2011. He recently founded the Walla Walla Whitman Imaginative Writing Partnership, which places talented Whittie writers in public schools.
