SVWC is a festival of ideas and literature with some of the most extraordinary writers and thinkers in the world, the most generous audience one is ever likely to encounter – close to 1,000 people, a good number of whom wield considerable influence in business, politics, media, and entertainment circles, but all of whom love to read – in one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places in the American West. The conference started 21 years ago and is now considered by many to be the best literary festival in the U.S.
|“. . .As advertised – it was the informal, shared experience with so many interesting and all-around wonderful people that made this a very special gathering.” Journalist JEFFREY BROWN, PBS NewsHour chief correspondent for arts, culture and society.|
