FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ORO Editions, San Francisco www.oroeditions.com Fall 2016
Janey Bennett’s lavishly illustrated study of the career of architect Mark Mills, from his time apprenticed to Frank Lloyd Wright to his late thin-shell concrete seashell-shaped houses, is written to be informative to architects as well as the general reader. Mills was one of the best visionary architects of the twentieth century and it is high time he got the attention Bennett has given him here.
Release date: October 15, 2016. Available for preorder from Village Books, or from Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com

We are on our Summer break for meetings until September, when we will be back with a new amazing speaker. We are working on next year’s line up right now, and can’t wait to reveal it to you!
Just because we are not having meetings does not mean we won’t be out and about in the community. Find us at the Chuckanut Writer’s conference in June, and a few of us will be at the Steampunk Festival in July. And we expect local author-members will have their own events to invite everyone too–don’t forget to submit to the website!
Remember our membership year runs from September to September, so your renewal date may be coming up. But all memberships purchased over the summer count toward the next membership year, so there is nothing wrong with renewing or joining early!
