May 12, 7:00 PM Third Place Books: Lake Forest Park, WA
Third Place Books welcomes the return of Iris Graville—Washington State Ferries’ first Writer-in-Residence and author of Hiking Naked—to our store at Lake Forest Park. Graville will be discussing her most recent book, Writer in a Life Vest: Essays from the Salish Sea, a collection of essays that sails between Orca whales, climate change, the WSF system, and turn a discerning eye upon the fragility of the very sea around us.
Joining Graville in conversation is Seattle historian David B. Williams, author of Homewaters: A Human and Natural History of Puget Sound and the popular guidebook Seattle Walks: Discovering History and Nature in the City. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required in advance.
