Books for Giving: Nonfiction by Washington authors

Keep it local this season by reading (and giving) books by Washington state authors. Here’s a selection of  local authors’ nonfiction titles — a biography of the Romanov family confidante (Rasputin),  a look at some pivotal  feminists (Dead Feminists), an animal history of Seattle (The City Is More Than Human), a look at what went on in the state penitentiary in Walla Walla (Unusual Punishment), a brilliant book on gender politics by a Stranger Genius Award winner (Shrill), a photographic essay covering decades in Seattle’s Chinatown (Seeing the Light: Four Decades in Chinatown), and many more. Consider these for your dad, your aunt (especially if your aunt happens to be me), your best friend, your sibling and yourself. And if you get impatient with slideshows in blog posts, head right on over to this straightforward list in our Library catalog: Books for Giving: 2016 Nonfiction by Washington Authors.
