The Mountaineers Tacoma Branch presents an evening with Jim Lynch, author of the book Before the Wind. Join us to meet the author and learn more about his local inspiration.

“Based in the Pacific Northwest, the narrative is told from the perspective of Joshua Johannssen, who has been surrounded by sailboats all of his life….Gracefully navigating between past and present, Lynch charts the changing tides of the Johannssen family. Before the Wind, a cautionary tale of obsession and its price, is one of those impossible-to-put-down books that make ideal summer reading.” --Practical Sailor's Review

Learn more about Before the Wind, Jim Lynch, and other books he has written, on his website, or check out the video below for a book sneak-peek complete with  lots of local sailing scenes.
