George Shannon

George Shannon is wears many hats & guises: Washington State Book Award winner (for Rabbit's Gift), former Children's Librarian, Professional Storyteller, Island Treasure, Field's End Volunteer Extraordinaire, and hirsute bookseller at Eagle Harbor Books.

"One of my favorite proverbs is “less is more,” though that may
seem odd for someone six feet four inches tall, with feet that need
a size thirteen shoe. But I truly believe it. Distilled art forms like
haiku and sculpture by artists like Isamu Noguchi and William Edmondson have always been my favorites. I believe books for young readers fall beautifully into this area as well. The challenge of sharing a story in as few words as possible and with a vital theme inside a “light-hearted” plot is one I sense I’ll always enjoy as surely as I do reading."
