—Eowyn Ivey, author of the Pacific Northwest Book Award-winning novel The Snow Child and author of this bookstore essay.
Buy the book about an indie bookstore from Ivey’s fave (she used to work there), Fireside Books, Palmer, AK or from one of the three NW stores at which Gabrielle Zevin will stop on April 7 and 8: Island Books, Mercer Island, 10:00 a.m., Monday; Eagle Harbor Book Co., Bainbridge Island, 12:00, Monday; Village Books, Bellingham, 7:00 p.m., Tuesday.
Comment on this post by April 10 and you will be entered to win a copy of The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry! NWBL will randomly draw names. The number of winners depends on how many review copies we can scare up around the office. Drop us a note; it’s easy.
10:00, Friday: This Just In! We’ve just received word from Zevin’s publisher that she is making 16 stops around the Puget Sound area April 7 – 9! Many of these are unpublicized events and will be small crowds—an amazing opportunity to meet, close-up, the hottest author making the indie rounds right now! See the map below and call your local store for details.
