Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest Event!

Authors Brandon Fralic and Rachel Wood will share some of their favorite trails and breweries from their ingenious new book! 

From their blog: The authors, Brandon Fralic and Rachel Wood are pioneers of Beer Hiking in the Pacific Northwest. In 2013 they launched this site, Beers at the Bottom, to highlight hiking trails and craft breweries in Western Washington. Since then they’ve sampled hundreds of hikes and brews at home and abroad, publishing stories along the way. Both feel most at home in the North Cascades or at a local taproom — pint in hand.

Joint Discussion and Signing - Jennifer Haupt and Anna Quinn

In the Shadow of 10,000 Hills by Jennifer Haupt deftly weaves together the journeys of three women from vastly diverse backgrounds who are searching for family and personal peace in post-genocide Rwanda.  At the heart of this novel that bestselling author Wally Lamb calls “an evocative page turner” is the discovery of grace when there can be no forgiveness.

The Night Child by Anna Quinn is the story of Nora Brown, an English teacher who lives a quiet life in Seattle with her husband and daughter until she starts seeing the haunting face of a young girl. Shaken and unsteady, Nora meets with neurologists and, eventually, a psychiatrist. As the story progresses, a terrible secret is discovered — a secret that pushes Nora toward an even deeper psychological breakdown. This breathtaking debut novel examines the impact of traumatic childhood experiences and the fragile line between past and present.

Both authors will be present for a discussion, Q&A, and signing.  All are welcome!
