“Bookavore” works for an independent bookstore in Brooklyn, New York. She recently read one of the 2010 Book Award winners from the independent bookstores of the Pacific Northwest, The Big Burn by Timothy Egan, and gave it a rave review. Gotta love her style!
Note, too, Bookavore’s honorable mention at the end of her column called “Best Thing I Read Last Week,” in which she gushes about a recent Dear Sugar column in “The Rumpus” blog on arts and entertainment produced by the L.A. Times. We have been told by an impeccable source that that column is written by another Northwest author. Care to guess which author? We’ll give you two hints: She (hint #1) promoted her new (then forthcoming) book at the Northwest booksellers’ fall show in 2005 as part of their Celebration of Authors (hint #2).
