Beth Gutcheon

Beth Gutcheon grew up in western Pennsylvania. She attended the Sewickley Academy, Miss Porter’s School in Farmington, Connecticut and Harvard College where she took an honors BA in English literature. She has spent most of her adult life in New York City, except for sojourns in San Francisco and on the coast of Maine. In 1978, she wrote the narration for a feature-length documentary on the Kirov ballet school, The Children of Theatre Street, which was nominated for an Academy Award, and she has made her living fulltime as a storyteller (novelist and sometime screenwriter) since then. Her novels have been translated into fourteen languages , if you count the pirate Chinese edition of Still Missing, plus large print and audio format.
Still Missing was made into a feature film called Without a Trace, and also published in a Reader’s Digest Condensed version which particularly pleased her mother. Several of her novels have been national bestsellers, including the most recent, Leeway Cottage. All of the novels are available in new uniform paperback editions from HarperPerennial.

Beth Gutcheon reads in the Writers at Newark Reading Series with Honor Moore on Tues., November 17, 2009, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Rutgers-Newark Paul Robeson Gallery.
