Year of Plenty

“Year of Plenty” Availability and Events in Spokane

Several folks have asked me where to buy a copy of Year of Plenty in the Spokane area. I just got word from Sun People Dry Goods that they have a bunch of copies that just arrived. They are located on Browne and 2nd Ave in downtown. The Corner Door Bookstore in Millwood also has a copy in stock. I'll be signing copies at SPDG tomorrow so let them know if you want a signed copy.

There are currently three events scheduled in Spokane around the release of YOP. 

April 2 at Aunties Bookstore, 2 pm - Spring Gardening Celebration
This will be a fun event celebrating gardening in Spokane, done in partnership with Second Harvest Inland Northwest and Spokane-Area Community Gardens. I'll do an author Q&A and book signing at 2 pm. That afternoon there will also be a Second Harvest Plant-a-Row for the Hungry seed giveaway for growing food to donate and kids gardening activities organized by Spokane Area Community Gardens.

Aril 9 at Barnes & Noble in Spokane Valley, 11 am - Spring Gardening Celebration
This event will be similar to the event at Barnes & Noble. This may also include a Bookfair, with Second Harvest benefiting from the sale of books related to the event. Stay tuned for more info.

April 28 at the Book Parlor, 7 pm - Community Book Discussion & Reading
This will be a more extended discussion around the themes in the book as they relate to the Inland Northwest. Go here to RSVP on Facebook



Year of Plenty

The Year of Plenty blog was created by Craig Goodwin in the winter of 2008 to chronicle the experiences of his family as they sought to consume everything local, used, homegrown or homemade. That journey was a wonderful introduction to people and movements in the Spokane area who are seeking the welfare of the community through local foods, farmers markets, community gardens, sustainable transportation, and more fulfilling and just patterns of consumption. In 2009 and beyond the blog will continue to report on these relationships and practices, all through the eyes of a family with young children. Craig manages the Millwood Farmers' Market, is a Master Food Preserver and Pastor at Millwood Presbyterian Church. Craig can be reached at goody2230@gmail.com
