Waimea Williams Special Guest at Squaw Valley with Amy Tan

Congratulations to Waimea Williams, author of ALOHA, MOZART, who is an honored special guest at this year’s Squaw Valley Writers’ Conference along with Amy Tan, author of THE JOY LUCK CLUB and THE KITCHEN GOD’S WIFE, and Richard Ford, Pulitzer Prize winning author of INDEPENDENCE DAY. 

Every summer for over 40 years, the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley has brought together fiction and non-fiction writers, poets, screenwriters, and aspiring participants for workshops, individual conferences, lectures, panels, readings, and discussions of the craft and the business of writing.
 
Waimea has a long connection to Squaw Valley and the Bay Area. She studied creative writing at UC Berkley’s SF extension and spent a year in a San Francisco writers’ group with Amy Tan when Amy was starting her second book. At Squaw Valley, co-founder Oakley Hall was Waimea’s mentor, and she worked with Robert Stone and Richard Ford. At this year’s July presentations by alumni authors, Waimea will read from her novel ALOHA, MOZART.
