Several folks have asked me where to buy a copy of Year of Plenty in the Spokane area. I just got word from Sun People Dry Goods that they have a bunch of copies that just arrived. They are located on Browne and 2nd Ave in downtown. The Corner Door Bookstore in Millwood also has a copy in stock. I'll be signing copies at SPDG tomorrow so let them know if you want a signed copy.
There are currently three events scheduled in Spokane around the release of YOP.
April 2 at Aunties Bookstore, 2 pm - Spring Gardening Celebration
This will be a fun event celebrating gardening in Spokane, done in partnership with Second Harvest Inland Northwest and Spokane-Area Community Gardens. I'll do an author Q&A and book signing at 2 pm. That afternoon there will also be a Second Harvest Plant-a-Row for the Hungry seed giveaway for growing food to donate and kids gardening activities organized by Spokane Area Community Gardens.
April 9 at Barnes & Noble in Spokane Valley, 11 am - Spring Gardening Celebration
This event will be similar to the event at Auntie's. This may also include a Bookfair, with Second Harvest benefiting from the sale of books related to the event. Stay tuned for more info.
April 28 at the Book Parlor, 7 pm - Community Book Discussion & Reading
This will be a more extended discussion around the themes in the book as they relate to the Inland Northwest. Go here to RSVP on Facebook.
