The cold weather and biting wind have driven most of us back into our scarves and mittens. The groundhog insisted that it would be an early spring, so as March rolls in the hope of warm sunshine (we got a little bit today!) parting the clouds fills our heads. Until then, come out of the cold and into the bookstore for a month full of absorbing author events.
We welcome famed poet and translator Robert Bringhurst on March 5th with the newly published edition of his book of translated and interpreted mythic tales, A Story as Sharp as a Knife: The Classical Haida Mythtellers and Their World; on March 7th at lunch time the chef and owner of Prune in New York Gabrielle Hamilton discusses her engaging and aptly titled memoir, Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef; the education program manager for Seattle Tilth Lisa Taylor joins us on March 15th with, Your Farm in the City: An Urban Dweller’s Guide to Raising Food and Raising Animals; one day later on March 16th novelist Téa Obreht reads from her much-acclaimed debut, The Tiger’s Wife; Gary Vaynerchuk makes a welcome return to the bookstore on March 19th to discuss his newest book, The Thank You Economy; and on March 31st Joshua Foer (yes, he’s related to that other famous Foer) visits Elliott Bay with his treatise on memory, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything.
Reminder: Tickets are now available at the bookstore or via www.brownpapertickets.com for Ted Danson at Town Hall Seattle on March 24th. Tickets for this evening are $35-which includes a copy of Oceana, to be received at the talk. Tickets are also available for Sarah Vowell at Town Hall Seattle on March 28th.
We look forward to seeing you!
