Small World, the new novel from Bainbridge Island reader (and bookseller) favorite Jonathan Evison, will be released in January, and we here at Eagle Harbor Book Company are celebrating with a special launch event featuring the author himself in conversation with special guest Jim Thomsen at the bookshop at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11.
Evison's latest is an epic novel for these times. Set against such iconic backdrops as the California gold rush, the development of the transcontinental railroad, and a speeding train of modern-day strangers forced together by fate, it is grand entertainment that asks big questions.
Appearing with the author is Jim Thomsen, a manuscript editor since 2010. He has provided developmental editing, line editing, copy editing and proofreading services to more than three hundred authors. Before that, he spent more than twenty years as a reporter and copy editor at newspapers all over the West Coast. Bainbridge Island is his hometown.
This in-store event will be limited to 70 guests; you can RSVP below. We take the well-being of our customers and staff seriously and ask that all guests are vaccinated or recently tested for Covid. Masks are required in our store at all times. Customers who cannot attend but would like an autographed book can pre-order and we will have your book signed or inscribed.
