The Whitefish Review’s 20th issue, “Out of Time,” will be released Saturday, Feb. 18 at 6:30 p.m. with a party at Casey’s Pub and Grill in Whitefish.

The issue marks 10 years of publication for the Review, a nonprofit biannual periodical that publishes “the literature, art and photography of mountain culture.”

“Out of Time” features 40 authors, poets, photographers and artists, including fiction by David James Duncan, poetry by Terry Tempest Williams and an interview with fly-fishing enthusiast Jimmy Kimmel, host of ABC’s late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

“It was a privilege for our founding team to speak with Jimmy about fly fishing, family and laughter in a changing world,” Whitefish Review Founding Editor Brian Schott said in a press release. “For ten years we’ve worked hard to show the world what a little literary journal from Montana can do.”

An interview by Charlie Ebbers with Jack Ward Thomas, the late 13th Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, is also featured. Thomas reflects on life and the road ahead for conservation. Thomas died in May 2016 at the age of 81, a little more than a year after the interview took place.

Also featured are two stories selected by author Rick Bass from the annual Montana Prize for Fiction contest.

“There were a bundle of worthy stories in this year’s fiction competition — more than usual,” Bass said in a press release. “In the end, for me, two were left standing, jockeying with their elbows for a place in my heart.”

Bass selected “John Duffy” by Karen Uhlmann as the winner of the $1,000 prize. “Wolves” by Katie McGunagle was awarded an honorable mention.

The young author featured in the new issue is 15-year-old Lucia Heutmaker with her essay “My Beloved Confinement.” Review editors have made it part of their decade-long mission to encourage young writers to submit work.

THE ISSUE will be released with a celebration at Casey’s, opening at 6:30 p.m. with live music by cellist and vocalist Lee Zimmerman. Readings start at 7:30 p.m. featuring authors David James Duncan and Chris Dombrowski. McGunagle will read from her new fiction featured in the issue.

A $10 entry donation is suggested to support the non-profit journal.

Duncan is the author of numerous books including “The River Why” and “The Brothers K.” He is a renowned fly-fisherman who has won a variety of awards for his fiction and nonfiction work, including three Pacific Northwest Booksellers Awards.

Dombrowski is the author of two collections of poetry, most recently “Earth Again.” His nonfiction debut “Body of Water (Milkweed Editions)” was published last fall. He currently serves as the Kittredge Distinguished Visiting Writer in the Environmental Studies program at the University of Montana.

McGunagle is a Flathead Valley native and graduate of Princeton University and Boston University. She currently lives in Bozeman. Whitefish Review first published her work in issue No. 4 (2008) when she was 16.

Whitefish Review is a recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation created for the public good, supported by donations, grants and subscriptions. Copies of Whitefish Review are available in bookstores and for order online at www.whitefishreview.org.
