Gregory Spatz has two passions: writing and playing music. Fiddle music in particular. He combines both in his newest book, “What Could Be Saved.” The stories and novellas delve into the worlds of those who build, play and build violins.

Spatz knows of what he writes. He’s a fiddle player with the Juno-nominated bluegrass group John Reischman and the Jaybirds, and his wife, Caridwen Spatz is a luthier.

Spatz’s previous books include “Inukshuk,” “No One but Us,” “Fiddler’s Dream” and “Wonderful Dream,” which won a Washington State Book Award in 2003. He also directs the creative writing program at Eastern Washington University.

John Keeble is the author of seven books and is a professor emeritus at Eastern. His latest novel, “The Appointment: The Tale of Adaline Carson,” tells the fictional story of the daughter of Kit Carson.

Together, these two will celebrate their book launches with a joint event at Saturday at the Spokane Public Library.

If you go: 7 p.m. Saturday at the downtown branch of the Spokane Public Library, 906 W. Main. Admission is free. (509) 444-5300 or www.spokanelibrary.org/downtown/.
