The Cather Project and the UNL Creative Writing Program, in partnership with the LGBTQA+ Resource Center, present David Ebershoff. Ebershoff is the author of the best-selling novel THE DANISH GIRL, inspired by the life of Lili Elbe, a pioneer in transgender history. The novel was adapted into the internationally acclaimed, Oscar-winning film, and it was a winner of the Lambda Literary Award and the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the Academy of Arts and Letters. Ebershoff is also the author of the New York Times bestsellers, THE 19th WIFE and PASADENA, and THE ROSE CITY, a collection of stories.

For twenty years, Ebershoff worked as an editor at Random House, where he edited books that went on to win the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, among other recognitions. In 2013, he became the first editor in history to edit the winners of the Pulitzer Prize in fiction and history in the same year. He has edited books by David Mitchell, Adam Johnson, Teju Cole, Sara Novic, Joyce Carol Oates, Diane Keaton, Jane Jacobs, and Billy Collins, among other award-winning, bestselling authors. He also oversaw the posthumous publications of Truman Capote, Norman Mailer, and WG Sebald.
