Messing with God's Country Book Reading at Third Place Books

Monday, August 17, 2015

Seattle author Melissa Laird will appear at Third Place Books on Aug. 19, 2015, to read from her Northwest eco-thriller Messing with God's Country.
The book reading and book signing event will run from 7 to 8pm at the book store, located at 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park.

In this eco-thriller, Laird uses her experience as a philanthropy officer for a national conservation non-profit and her interest in the Seattle music scene to weave a fast-paced tale of philanthropy, conservation, jazz and violent racism.

"Messing with God's Country" gives readers a detailed sense of life and culture in the Pacific Northwest - the incredible natural beauty, a culture that embraces a love of the land, independence, and in the extreme - the pocket of hatred that in the 1980s and '90s grew in the woods that are so revered.

Laird has lived in the Seattle area since 1971. She has an English degree from Stanford University and a master's degree in ethnomusicology from the University of Washington. Since 1996 she has worked at The Nature Conservancy in Seattle, where she is associate director of philanthropy. Reach her at 206-462-9582 or via email.
