New Book Featuring with the Bellingham Herald

Dean Kahn, editor and columnist for the Bellingham Herald, has announced that the Herald’s quarterly glossy magazine, Whatcom Magazine, will include a listing of new books from Whatcom County authors.  In this new feature, he hopes to include either a book cover or an author photo as an art element with each list.

Of first interest will be new books written by authors living in the county; second, new books by former county residents; and, third, new books by other authors with subject matter of particular interest to Whatcom readers.

The quarterly listing will be not include reviews; rather it will be a checklist with title, author name, retail price, a sentence of description, and needed information on availability.

Whatcom Writers and Publishers members should send email notices about their new titles to dean.kahn@bellinghamherald.com.
