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.
Join Laurie Ann Thompson to celebrate the release of her newest book Two Truths and a Lie: Histories and Mysteries.
Help author Bradley Bagshaw celebrate the release of his book Georges Bank.
A work of historical fiction, Georges Bank is written in the timeless tradition of such maritime novels as C.S. Forrester's Hornblower series, Joseph Conrad's Typhoon and Pat Conroy's Prince of Tides. Georges Bank is a nineteenth century tale of power and greed set in the stormy waters off Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Book launch for Thomas Paine and the Dangerous Word by Sarah Jane Marsh!
Our best kept secret is that we have been hosting a true crime book club since we have opened. It started when fans of the podcast My Favorite Murder were looking for a place to talk books and now they've found their home! This month the Murderinos are reading I'll Be Gone in the Dark. All are welcome!
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!
