When I close my eyes and conjure up a mental image that reads “ideal book store”, it tends to go a little something like this: wooden floors (if they creak, all the better), the aroma of robust coffee, an idyllic setting, and a wide selection of books appealing to my specific interests. The kind of place equally pleasant to rendezvous with a friend for a long rambly chat or  to attend solo, thumbing thru pages at a sloth’s pace. It just so turns out that, during my upcoming time in Washington state, I’ll be able to not only patronize but speak at two such places. Dreams really do come true.

Make your calendars, friends. Bookending my time at Write: Doe Bay (now sold out, woohoo!) will be events at Darvill’s Bookstore (on the water!) and Book Larder (a bookstore dedicated to cookbooks!). Best of all, both events are free and open to the public. If you live out that way, I’d love to meet you! Here are the event details:

What: A chat about “Handmade Gatherings”, “Quench”, and, well, probably all of my books, as Darvill’s has carried them since the early days!
Cost: Free!
RSVP?: Not sure. Call the book store to find out!

 

Book Larder
Where: 4252 Fremont Avenue North, Seattle WA, 98103

    I am thrilled to have won something for the first time in my life–a preview copy of ‘Quench’ from GoodReads. I cannot wait to whet my appetite with new and intriguing beverage recipes combined with your homespun style of writing and photography. Thank you for the opportunity to feel special–like a winner!

    I was so excited to see your name on the Book Larder line up! I’m looking forward to meeting you in person. I do the the urban version of self employed, garden, chickens, young ones and always enjoy seeing how you do your version.

  • We were there in September – such a cool bookshop!!! Hope it went well and you made it across the street to Brown Bear Baking for some delish pastries & coffee :)
