Tonight, at Eagle Harbor Book Company on Bainbridge Island, nine authors will try on their bookselling hats for the evening. The authors—Kathleen Alcala, Carol Cassella, David Guterson, Jonathan Evison, Suzanne Selfors, Kristin von Kreisler, Susan Wiggs, Barbara Winther and George Shannon—will recommend their favorite books on writing and otherwise from 5-7 pm. Shannon will share stories for kids, giving the event a family friendly feel. It’s all a benefit for Field’s End, a lecture and writing workshop series based on Bainbridge, with a percentage of book sales going to the group.
We know that most authors are great at recommending books, but can they shelve or type in a 13-digit ISBN with one hand while directing an antsy five-year-old to the bathroom with the other? Good luck guys!
