They may not be WA residents anymore, but we still celebrate the contributions these writers have made to our literary culture.
We’ve compiled some titles that we think are worth remembering, celebrating, and re-reading. Check out our suggestions here and if you have suggestions of your own, post a comment or send us an email.
Books for Book Clubs
Reading may be a solitary activity but if you belong to a Book Club it’s also a way to stay socially engaged. If you’d like help selecting local books to recommend to your club, check in with this page on a weekly basis and we’ll provide you with our tips for books that will have everyone talking. We’ll even supply you with notes for each title to help get the conversation started.
Don’t belong to a book club? This is the perfect time to start one! Get a bunch of friends together on Zoom, Google Hangouts, or the platform of your choice and work your way through our recommendations.
