On Jan 31 Jonathan Evison had a dual celebration at his hometown bookstore, Eagle Harbor Book Company on Bainbridge Island, Washington, for the paperback release of his bestselling novel West of Here and in honor of his 2012 Pacific Northwest Book Award. You can read his acceptance essay, “Why We Endure,” here on NWBL.
The Eagle Harbor crew were thrilled to present their Johnny with his commemorative award plaque. Now, Evison’s publisher would like to offer a lucky Evison fan a special award of his or her own.
Algonquin Books has a wooden box edition of West of Here complete with maps, Port Bonita postcards and a signed copy of the new paperback, and they’d like to send one to a reader of Jonathan Evison and Northwest Book Lovers! To enter, simply leave a comment about your experience with Johnny, his work, his award or Eagle Harbor Book Co. on Northwest Book Lovers in response to this offer, before 9am Monday morning, 02/13. NWBL will draw a lucky winner from the fedora, and Algonquin will send you your prize.
