Rainier Beach Arts & Crafts Market

I am delighted to be part of the Rainier Beach Arts & Crafts Market, Saturday, December 5 from 11am to 3pm. Thanks to Ellen VanderWey, I’ll be displaying books at 8735 Hamlet Ave S, a couple of blocks from SPLAB World Headquarters. A Time Before Slaughter/Pig War: & Other Songs of Cascadia, American Sentences, American Prophets, a few anthologies and a couple of Sam Hamill titles will be available for your holiday gift giving needs.
