April will bring some well-known authors — as well as some great local authors — to Eagle Harbor Books.

Author Angela Day will read from her book “Red Light to Starboard: Recalling the Exxon Valdez Disaster” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 3.

This thoroughly researched book documents the tragic event that stunned the world and forever changed the way we go about tapping resources in fragile environments.

Day takes readers behind the scenes to the moments before the super tanker ran aground, ripping a huge hole in her hull and spilling enormous amounts of crude oil into Prince William Sound. Currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Washington, Day recounts the regional and national history that lead to oil titans being entrusted with the spectacular ecosystem. It discusses the environmental consequences as well as failed governmental and public policy decisions. Day also tracks the changes that, through opportunities for citizen input and oversight, offer hope for the future.

Eagle Harbor Books welcomes Seattle author Margot Page at 3 p.m.

Sunday, April 13 to talk about her memoir “Paradise Imperfect: An American Family’s Move to the Mountains of Costa Rica.”

The book is described as a witty, insightful memoir of a family’s struggle to right itself in a leafy new world, and is about parenting and privilege, loneliness and connection.

Eagle Harbor Books will get ready for World Book Night at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 17 with a reception for the creative givers who are bringing the joy of reading to folks who might not always have a book at hand. These volunteers will go out into the community, bringing books to people - young and old - with the gift of a free book provided by Eagle Harbor and World Book Night USA on Thursday, April 23.

Renowned artist, writer and naturalist David Sibley visits the Winslow bookstore over lunch at noon Monday, April 21 as part of the national launch of the new Sibley Guide to Birds, 2nd Edition.

Sibley will talk about his book, birds and answer questions. He will also sign books. Seating is limited, and first seating will be given to customers who buy the guide from Eagle Harbor Books. Tickets are available at Eagle Harbor Books.

Bainbridge Island author and illustrator Jennifer Mann will read from her new picture book, “Two Speckled Eggs,” in a special story time at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 27.
