We're excited to present a very special open book club in May. Our guest host, acclaimed Northwest author Jim Lynch, will moderate and discuss his latest novel just out in paperback, Before the Wind (read our recent Q&A with him here.) A funny, big-hearted story about a gifted and volatile Seattle family, Before the Wind came out in April 2015 and the book has been praised by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Seattle Times, and The Toronto Star. Lynch, a winner of the Pacific Northwest Bookseller's Award and the Washington State Book Award, is the author of The Highest Tide, Border Songs, and Truth Like the Sun.
Island Book's open book club meets the last Thursday of every month at 7:30pm. Our staff facilitator chooses both fiction and nonfiction titles. All are welcome to attend, and if you purchase your book here in the store you'll always get a 10% discount.
