Eagle Harbor offers two author talks

Two noteworthy authors will visit Eagle Harbor Book Company this week.

First, at 3 p.m. Sunday, July 20, Seattle author Arleen Williams will visit the downtown Winslow store to discuss her first novel “Running Secrets.”

Flight attendant Chris Stevens is bent on self-destruction until she meets Gemi Kemmal, an Ethiopian home healthcare provider. Gemi and Jake, a paramedic, help Chris heal from and confront her difficult past, and regain a passion for living. In the process, Chris and Gemi forge a friendship that bridges cultural, racial and age differences.

Next, the store will host Nick Jans at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 24 for a discussion of his book “A Wolf Called Romeo.”

This remarkable true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, oddly gentle black wolf and the people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska, is part memoir, part animal narrative, and a beautiful if heart-wrenching account of man’s relationship with wild animals.

Eagle Harbor Book Company is located at 157 Winslow Way East. For more information about these and other upcoming author events, visit
