If All KIRKLAND Read the Same Book 2015
The Painter by Peter Heller
Thursday, October 22nd ~ 7:00 pm
This summer we invited you to read The Painter, a complex character driven story that integrates art with violence, poetry with addiction, and nature with deep introspection. Years ago, a well-known expressionist painter named Jim Stegner shot a man in a bar. The man lived, Jim served his time, and he has learned to live with the dark impulses that sometime overtake him. He now enjoys a quiet life in the valleys of Colorado, works with a lovely model, doesn't drink, and he goes fly fishing in the evenings. He is--if he can admit it--almost happy...until the day that he comes across a hunting guide beating a small horse, and this brutal act of new violence rips his quiet life right open.
Other titles by the author include Dog Stars. He is a seasoned adventure journalist and senior editor at Outside Magazine.
Now join us in meeting with Peter Heller for a great
evening of discussion in celebration of
If All Kirkland Read the Same Book!!!

An Ivan Doig Memorial Bench Update
Due to all the wonderful contributions, a check for $600 was sent to Carol Doig for the bench purchase.
Carol recently contacted us to let us know that the bench has been purchased and is being placed in the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden located at 20312 15th Ave. NW, Seattle.
The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is a free public garden created in 1958 by and named after Dr. Art Kruckeberg, Professor Emeritus of Botany at the Univ. of Washington and his wife, Maureen, a self taught botanist, on property that the Professor still lives on. Prof. Kruckeberg's book Gardening with NativePlants of the PacNW was considered to be the classic PacNW gardening guide for years while in print.
The grounds also houses the MSK Rare and Native Plants Nursery.
Check out the website www.kruckeberg.org for further details, hours and public events.
