National Book Festival

David Wroblewski grew up in rural central Wisconsin, not far from the Chequamegon National Forest, where "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" is set. In high school, Wroblewski won a statewide arts competition with a story about a pack of wolves. At the University of Wisconsin, he became fascinated with the art of making software and earned a degree in computer science. "Edgar Sawtelle" is Wroblewski's first book, was chosen for Oprah Winfrey's Book Club and is a New York Times best-seller. It is a retelling of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Wroblewski lives in Colorado.
