Author to discuss whale experiences at Eagle Harbor Books
Author Diane Hammond will be visiting Eagle Harbor Books at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2 to discuss her latest novel, “Friday’s Harbor,” which was based on her real life experiences as spokesperson for Keiko, the killer whale star of the hit film “Free Willy.”
Hammond will be accompanied by her husband, who was Keiko’s keeper before his eventual release off the shores of Iceland.
“Friday’s Harbor” is the compelling story of a dying orca, the caring zoo that saves him, and the controversy that surrounds his captivity.
