Iris Graville’s Book Launch

Lopez Bookshop is proud to announce Iris Graville’s Book Launch on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Woodmen Hall, 7:00pm. Iris celebrates other authors at bookshop events, but now it’s time to celebrate Iris and her new book, Hiking Naked: A Quaker Woman’s Search for Balance. Iris holds a special place at the bookshop as our Social Media and Events Coordinator. We look forward to hearing Iris read her own words.

Iris spent many years as a public health nurse before turning to teaching and writing. She holds a Master’s of Nursing degree from the University of Washington and an MFA in Creative Writing from the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts. She is the publisher of SHARK REEF online literary magazine, which had its origins with the Lopez Writers Guild. Iris is also the author of Hands at Work: Portraits and Profiles of People Who Work with Their Hands and BOUNTY: Lopez Island Farmers, Food, and Community.

Please join us in honoring Iris at Woodmen Hall on Saturday, September 16 at 7pm. Books will be available for purchase and signing; you also can pre-order by notifying the Bookshop.
