The 2022 Sun Valley Writers’ Conference (SVWC), held July 16-18 at the beautiful Sun Valley Resort and Pavilion, is gearing up to be one of our best yet. With speakers like Judy Woodruff, Arthur C. Brooks, and Lauren Groff—as well as budding debut novelists, Black, Chicana, and Asian voices, and a hip-hop comedy troupe straight from Broadway—we will be weaving together a rich tapestry of both talent and topics. Listen to beloved novelist Anthony Doerr discuss the power and necessity of books to build bridges between human beings, hear science journalist Elizabeth Kolbert share instructive stories about reinventing our climate-changed world, and join some of our country’s foremost thinkers as they discuss the current state of democracy in America and around the globe (Evan Osnos, Yascha Mounk, and Heather McGhee to name a few). We also have three of our nation’s most celebrated poet-authors—Rita Dove, Natasha Trethewey, and Ocean Vuong—taking us on those introspective and importantly quieter journeys over the course of the three-day event.
