Matt Raymond from the Library of Congress speaks with David Wroblewski, who will appear at the 2009 National Book Festival on September 26, 2009, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
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.
