AWARD PRESENTATION AND BOOK RELEASE FOR THOR HANSON AT GRIFFIN BAY BOOKSTORE
Please join Griffin Bay Bookstore for the presentation of a 2016 Pacific Northwest Book Award to local author Thor Hanson. Hanson’s book The Triumph of Seeds was chosen by a panel of independent booksellers from over 290 titles published by Northwest authors in 2015. This is the second PNBA Award for Hanson; in 2012 the award honored his book, Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle.
The PNBA Award presentation will take place at Griffin Bay Bookstore on Wednesday, April 6, 7:00 p.m., followed by a reception and book signing. This gathering will also celebrate the release of Thor’s latest book, Bartholomew Quill, an illustrated children’s story about a curious young crow. And there’s even more cause for celebration: The Triumph of Seeds has just been released in paperback.
