Author, photographer to talk at book launch

Walkers looking to chart a new path on the island can find out where to beat feet in a special event next week at the Bainbridge Island Public Library.

A new book, the second edition of “Walks on Bainbridge” will be launched with a talk and book signing at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at the library. “Walks on Bainbridge” includes 26 walks with illustrative maps and photographs.

“These are exciting developments for walkers; a 35-acre Hilltop parcel with trails connecting the East and West portions of the Grand Forest, five acres added to Ted Olsen park and an extended trail system, expansion of Gazzam Lake Park with trails to be built.  I will talk about the new trails and some of my favorite seasonal walks on Bainbridge Island,” said Alice Shorett, co-author of the book.

Shorett will give the talk, answer questions and sign books. Paul Brians, who provided most of the photography for the book, will illustrate the talk with slides.

The event is free and open to the public.

The book, which sells for $13.95, is a benefit for the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, with all proceeds being donated to the land trust. It is available at Eagle Harbor Bookstore, Wildernest, The Traveler, Bloedel Reserve and at the Bainbridge Island Land Trust offices.
