A very belated but very hearty thanks to all who came to the standing-room-only Grand Book Launch event May 12 at the Whatcom Museum, sponsored by Village Books, North Cascades Institute, and the Museum. It was a great pleasure to share Geology Underfoot in Western Washington with the huge crowd, sign copies, and tell you a bit about my background, how the book came about and how I put it together. Village Books sold out their entire advance shipment. The rest of the print run is on its way across the Pacific and will be available for bookstores at the end of May. NOW IS THE TIME TO ORDER A COPY FROM YOUR FAVORITE BOOKSTORE! The store will obtain copies via their distributors. Some sources tell me that advance sales are pretty brisk. The initial print run is 5000 copies. Mountain Press Publishing and I think the first printing will go fast, so don’t delay.
I am available for presentations at bookstores and your organizations throughout western Washington and down to Portland. Contact your bookstore, and drop me an email.
Here is a link to an article about me and the book by Dean Kahn that appeared in the May 18 Bellingham Herald:
