LFP Reads The Whistling Season and the author is at Third Place Books

Saturday, July 10, 2010

LFP Reads has chosen local author Ivan Doig's novel The Whistling Season for its sixth city-wide Summer book.

Doig will attend a book club discussion of The Whistling Season Monday, July 26 at 7 pm at the book store, and all are invited.

The Whistling Season is set in early-20th century Montana (familiar Doig country) and is the story of a widower who advertises for a housekeeper for him and his children -- the woman who steps off the train is just right for the job, and her brother adds his own color to all of their lives. “It's a novel any reader 13 and up can enjoy,” noted LFP Reads committee member Cheryl McKeon.

Cookies: Great Harvest Bakery, on the lower level of the Lake Forest Park Towne Centre, is offering a free cookie to readers of The Whistling Season. An art exhibit and a program about Montana pioneer life round out the summer’s events.

Artists: Entries for a one-day two-dimensional exhibit should reflect a theme from the book. Entry forms for the July 31 exhibit are at Third Place Books. The art work will be displayed on the lower level of the mall.

Earlier LFP Reads titles were: Broken For You by Stephanie Kallos; The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch; Plenty: A Year of Eating Locally by Alisa Smith and J.B. Mackinnon; The Worst Hard Time by Tim Egan; and A Sudden Country by Karen Fisher. While Plenty was written by a couple from BC, all the others are by local authors.

LFP Reads is a consortium of the City, the LFP branch of King County Library, Friends of the Library, and Third Place Books.
