A winner of the Harper Lee Award and the Southeastern Library Association Fiction award, she is the author of eight previous works of fiction, including Ahab's Wife, a finalist for the Women’s Prize for Fiction (formally the Orange Prize). She is retired from her position as Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Louisville. Naslund is a 2020 Kentucky Writer’s Hall of Fame inductee and keynote speaker.


David King is a Gaines alumnus and best-selling author of four books of history and narrative nonfiction, including Death in the City of Light and The Trial of Adolf Hitler. A Fulbright Scholar with a master's degree from Cambridge University, King taught European history at the University of Kentucky.
