Members and guests joined us on Oct. 24 at the Seattle Times building to learn more about the book-publishing industry. The panel of speakers included:

  • Elizabeth Wales of the Seattle-based Wales Literary Agency
  • Lyanda Lynn Haupt, Seattle author of Crow Planet and four more books and winner of a Washington State Book Award and a Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award
  • Tom Fischer, editor-in-chief at Timber Press in Portland, which publishes books on horticulture, gardening, and natural history. Fischer got his start in book publishing at the University of Chicago Press and Beacon Press.

We met after the event at Brave Horse Tavern nearby to chat.
