September SLT Reads

Sep 2021 30

5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

Our September book selection, recommended by SLT Reads participants, is The Good Rain: Across Time and Terrain in the Pacific Northwest by Timothy Egan. 

The classic book on the Northwest is consistently voted one of the 10 essential books about the region.  The author follows a ghost, Theodore Winthrop, who wrote the first national book about the Northwest in the 1850s.  That journey went by horseback and canoe. The modern jaunt goes by kayak, hoof, plane,  Coast Guard life raft and car to explore the natural and human wonder at the far edge of the continent.

"A celebration of natural bounty, a warning that too much has been lost...Egan is a worthy spokesman for his homeland, a fluent and crafty writer" -Los Angeles Times
