Aaron Renier
The Unsinkable Walker Bean (First Second)
Tuesday, February 22 at 7 pm
Mild, meek, and a little geeky, Walker is always happiest in his grandfather’s workshop, messing around with his inventions. But when he crosses paths with a witch his life becomes strewn with pirates, magical machines, ancient lore, and deadly peril.

Kurt Timmermeister
Growing a Farmer : How I Learned to Live Off the Land
(WW Norton)
Wednesday, February 23 at 7 pm
Personal yet practical, Growing a Farmer includes the specifics of making cheese, raising cows, and slaughtering pigs, and it will recast entirely the way we think about our relationship to the food we consume.

Ed Harkness
Beautiful Passing Lives
Anne Pitkin
Winter Arguments
Thursday, February 24 at 7 pm
Harkness is very good at shining the poet’s light on natural details and puts this to good use in poems where he does not squint when he looks at the world and we are rewarded with a full and multi-leveled world in these poems.
Anne Pitkin earned degrees from Vanderbilt and Antioch Universities. She has worked as a community college English instructor and as a psychotherapist and now lives in Seattle, where she plays jazz piano with her friends.

Bruce Fraser
On Potato Mountain
Friday, February 25 at 6:30 pm
After practicing law for 45 years, representing Native clients and ranching in the Chilcotin- Cariboo, Fraser brings his experience and powers of observation to a mystery focusing on the Chilcotin, with a reverence for its majesty and charm and the spirit and independence of the people who inhabit this region.

Monica McDowell
You Are Light
Saturday, February 26 at 6:30 pm
Monica McDowell unveils eight words that reveal a person’s Truest Self. At the heart of each of the eight chapters is a vibrant spiritual message followed by a practical workbook section to help readers connect with their highest and best inner guidance.

Third Place Books at LFP Towne Centre is a major stop on the book circuit for 
authors promoting new books. Authors generally read from their books, sometimes answer a few questions, and then autograph the copies that people have purchased. Most of the events take place in The Den, a cozy area in the middle of the store.
