2023 Keynote Speaker – Chris Bohjalian

“As much as I love writing (the verb), I probably love writing (the noun) even more. I doubt anyone becomes a serious novelist who doesn’t love reading: savoring paragraphs that precisely capture longing or dread or desire. Being riveted by a plot twist that is utterly surprising but, you realize, perfect, because it was inevitable.”

What people are saying…

Bookmarked is a wonderful opportunity for readers and writers to come together. I was impressed by the talent we have in Wyoming and can’t wait to see who joins us in the years to come!

— Sarah Reilley

As an author who has attended two years of Bookmarked, I’m always eagerly awaiting the next one! Having a community care so much about writers-and-readers connecting is not only encouraging, but a brilliant response to life in a state where distance rules.

— Carol Deering
