This isn't a competition, but a celebration– of writing, of local authors, of bookstores and libraries, and of a book that never fit easily into one category, that wasn't trusted as viable or believed in by big publishers, and which succeeded anyway. It's been a bestseller at Elliott Bay for an entire year (!!!), and we continue to have exciting projects and events pertaining to it coming up.
Basically– the book lives, and that's thanks to you. Stop by this Saturday, 7pm at Seattle Central Library and celebrate. I'll be there for a reception afterwards. Details, directions and more here.
For now, check out the following if you haven't already!
