Last year, we reported on Gatewood author Lyanda Lynn Haupt‘s tale of in-city wildlife – something experienced in West Seattle more than many other places! – “The Urban Bestiary: Encountering the Everyday Wild.” This week, big news – “Urban Bestiary” is one of four finalists in the nonfiction category of the Orion Book Awards, which span North American work published in the preceding year and just this year separated nonfiction and fiction contenders. The winners will be announced next month.
