A Tribute to Brian Doyle


It has been nearly a year since prodigious writer Brian Doyle came to Eagle Harbor Book Company with his friend and fellow writer David James Duncan. For those of us who were able to attend, it was a magical evening of passion, humor, and inspiring words. Just days later Doyle received a diagnosis of brain cancer, and he died at his home in Portland, OR, in May 2017.

But his legacy lives on, and we'd like to bring our community together to celebrate his life and his works. In addition, two posthumous books of essays were recently released that many of our customers will want to see.

We will share stories, read from our favorite passages, and encourage all to take part this tribute to his enormous gift to the world. Please join us Saturday, Nov. 4, at 3pm at Eagle Harbor Book Company.
