Seattle-based author and documentarian Garth Stein will be at the Gjerde Center at Columbia Basin College in Pasco tonight as the last guest speaker for this year's Mid-Columbia Literary Festival.
Stein, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Art of Racing In The Rain, will speak at 7 p.m. at the community college. His book is about a racecar driver and his dog, which believes it will be born again as a human if it is ready.
Stein also has written a play and produced a number of documentaries and films, including the Academy Award-winning The Lunch Date. He also worked on films commemorating the 1992 Democratic National Convention and one about his sister's brain surgery.
The event is free and open to the public.
The festival, commonly referred to as LitFest, will conclude June 5, at Bookwalter Winery with local readers talking about the books they think people should be reading.
