Authors to visit Eagle Harbor Books
The downtown Winslow literary epicenter Eagle Harbor Book Company is slated to host three very special author visits in the coming weeks.
At 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10, national bestseller Spencer Quinn from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, will talk about the latest in his Chet and Bernie mystery series, “Paw and Order.”
In the series latest installment, Chet and Bernie travel to Washington, D.C., and are swept up in a case involving international spies, cloak-and-dagger espionage and a truly unpleasant guinea pig.
At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, Whidbey Island writer Betsy MacGregor will talk about her book “In Awe of Being Human: A Doctor’s Stories from the Edge of Life and Death.”
The book is a physician’s reflection on living, healing and dying, set amidst the challenging world of hospitals and hospices and the medical professionals who work in them. MacGregor spent three decades at a busy hospital in New York City, and the book delivers a tender and powerful message about what it means to be human.
Finally, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17, the prodigiously talented Bainbridge author and bookstore favorite Barbara Winther makes a return appearance, giving a presentation on her new book, which takes readers to a Hopi Indian village in Northeastern Arizona to watch a ceremonial Kachina year through the eyes of two Hopi children.
The book includes Winther’s own pen-and-ink drawings, water-colored by island artist friend Lynn Cooper, based on the Kachina dolls in Winther’s collection.
