Book Release Shindig!
Wednesday, November 18, 7pm
The Nearsighted Narwhal
2610 6th Ave, Tacoma, Washington 98406
Event on Facebook

Our focus will not only be on the release of a pretty amazing book comprised of over 20 people’s submissions, but also a community building event.

We’re hosting a potluck of the recipes that were featured in the book. We’re having readers that were featured in the book orate their stories and poems. We’re opening this up to the community so that we can mingle, get to know one another, share our experiences, and find our support network through the gray. Community is what we are about at The Narwhal.

The Thriving & Surviving book will be available for purchase at this date. It is NOT a requirement that you buy the book to attend the event.

Reading from the book will be:
– Jennifer Chushcoff
– Nick Stillman
– Titus Burley
– Nicole McCarthy
– and Joshua Swainston

Rainy Day Activity workshops will be offered, all for free.
Specific ones TBA.

Thriving & Surviving is a resource compendium on different ways to deal with the impending rainy season in the PNW. It is filled with advice, stories-both fiction and non-fiction, poetry, art, photography, comfort food recipes, and input from over 25 different PNW local people.

Whether you are a PNW native or have recently moved to the area, or just enjoy reading about the rain, this book will not only entertain you, it has the power to change your perspective about the rain and help you to embrace it instead of hiding out and waiting for the summertime.

Contributors will be able to pick up a free copy of the book on this day.
