Bid on an autographed copy of his memoir
at the Third Place Commons Breakfast Thursday

Third Place Commons annual fundraising breakfast is this Thursday at 7 am. In addition to a fabulous Honey Bear breakfast there will be a short but fabulous auction.

Third Place Books has donated a basket of books that holds five signed first editions. This is an incredible opportunity to become a book collector, or to add to your collection. The value of this collection of first editions — signed first editions -- is $700.

Included in the basket are:
  • A Full Life by Jimmy Carter – President Carter visited Third Place Books just a few months ago. 
  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. An amazing book that won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. 
  • The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. The story of a local hero who, with the UW rowing team, won the 1936 Olympics. 
  • It's Your World by Chelsea Clinton. Stories about people who have made a difference.
  • Born With Teeth: a Memoir by Kate Mulgrew. Ms. Mulgrew is the actress who played Captain Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek and plays Red in Orange is the new Black. 

Just in case you don’t win the books, there are also 12 restaurant certificates, which will be auctioned off separately in a Restaurant Rush.

Bid on a get-away at the Alderbrook Resort and Spa
Or, if you have the mid-winter blahs but need more than just a meal out, you could consider bidding on one of two vacations. One is a four-day stay in a beautiful, new, Washington coast vacation cabin and the other is a get-away at the gorgeous Alderbrook Resort and Spa.

To top it off, the board is auctioning a basket of beer so you can have something to drink as you browse through your new books or relax by the water.

You won’t want to miss this fun community event!

Breakfast tickets are still available on-line at buy a ticket, or in person at the bookstore.
