A gripping story of murder, forbidden love, and atonement, Book-It’s world-premiere production of Snow Falling on Cedars by Northwest writer David Guterson will both chill your senses and redeem your conscience. Set in the San Juan Islands in 1954, an American-Japanese fisherman is accused of murder. As the trial unravels, it brings to light not only one man’s guilt or innocence but a forbidden love and the dark secrets of a community that looked away when their neighbors were sent into exile.
