Maybe you’re looking for a reason to pay Island Books a visit. If so, Jim Lynch’s appearance on Wed, May 16th, gives you an awfully good excuse. He’s touring in support of his new novel, Truth Like the Sun, which paints a dual portrait of Seattle, showing it as it was in the 1960s and as it is in our current century. Lynch is a Mercer Island product and a gem among Northwest writers, and this latest book may be his finest yet. The event is free, and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. We hope to see you there!
