Join author Lynn Stegner for intimate insights on the Pulitzer-Prize winning author and groundbreaking environmentalist Wallace Stegner. Hear her memorable stories about Wally,” stories only a fellow author and family member can tell.

Lynn Stegner is the author of six works of fiction, including a novella and short story collection. Her work has received numerous awards including the Faulkner Award for Best Novel for Because a Fire Was in My Head—which was also a New York Times Editors’ Choice, a BookSense Pick, and a Literary Ventures Selection. She wrote the extended critical introduction to her father-in-law’s short fiction, Collected Stories of Wallace Stegner, and edited and wrote the foreword to the Penguin edition Wallace Stegner: On Teaching and Writing Fiction. Her writings include collaborations with conservation biologists and paleontologists.
