Shoreline and Richmond Beach have joined with Lake Forest Park READS again this year, marking the twelfth year of this community literary event.
In Martin Marten, Oregon teenager Dave and pine marten Martin experience ups and downs on the road to adulthood and learn that nature shapes us all. On Mount Hood, two young lives intertwine as they come of age.
Fourteen year old Dave lives in a cabin with his family, but separation from his life there approaches. Dave's story is braided with that of a young pine marten, also on the brink of adulthood and striking out on his own.
The interconnectedness of all life and the wonders of the natural world shine through this hopeful tale.
