About the event
The Washington State University Press will host its 27th annual holiday book fair in the Terrell Library Atrium on the Pullman campus. The fair highlights books published throughout the year and is open to everyone. Festivities include steep discounts of 20-50% on all titles, drawings for free books, and complimentary refreshments.
Around noon, author Darin Watkins will start signing copies of Chance for Glory, which chronicles the untold story of the magical 1915-16 football season, when coach William “Lone Star” Dietz led his undersized Washington State players to victory in the first Rose Bowl. The fair will also feature new titles on a variety of subjects—stories behind Seattle’s monuments; Tri-Cities communities before the Manhattan Project’s forced evacuation for plutonium processing; the Seattle 7 conspiracy; Captain Cook’s final voyage; low dose radiation; Pacific Northwest Volga Germans; Palouse railroads; and more.
Founded in 1928 and revitalized in the 1980s, WSU Press concentrates on telling unique, focused stories about the Northwest. For information about the book fair, contact WSU Press at 335-7880.
Throughout the Holiday Book Fair week, December 3-7, 2018, sale prices will be valid for phone orders of all titles as well as online orders of the nine titles new since last year.
