Book Talk: Swimming Holes of Washington at Browsers Bookshop

Join Anna Katz and Shane Robinson, the authors of "Swimming Holes of Washington," for a presentation and book signing at Browsers Bookshop!

Writer and editor Anna Katz and ski guide Shane Robinson share their refreshing new book, Swimming Holes of Washington.

There is no shortage of guides for places to hike, climb, and paddle in Western Washington, but not much on how to find perfect places to swim. Now Swimming Holes of Washington fills that, er, hole. Everyone from hardcore hikers to families out for a picnic and plunge will enjoy this guide to a universally loved activity. Authors Anna Katz and Shane Robinson literally dove into their research to find the best swimming holes to share. They set the bar high: cleanliness and clearness of the water is paramount, but the beauty of the surrounding area, the company (or wonderful lack thereof), and the effort involved in getting there are also taken into account.

Admission is free and open to the public.
