WEST SEATTLE WEEKEND SCENE: Book launch for ‘Orca Rescue!’

Visit C&P Coffee Company (5612 California SW; WSB sponsor) and you can help The Whale Trail‘s founder Donna Sandstrom celebrate publication of her book “Orca Rescue! The True Story of an Orphaned Orca Named Springer.” The youth-geared book recounts a memorable chapter in Pacific Northwest history, when a Northern Resident Orca got lost in Puget Sound and was successfully rescued and returned to home waters, where she thrives today. You can buy the book and get it signed while you’re there; the event’s on until 5 pm, in the C&P backyard.

    Wish I could’ve made it! Will this book be available at a local bookstore? Paper Boat Booksellers?

      The sales at the event today were through PBB so I’m pretty sure you can get it at the store too.

    Thanks WSB for stopping by! And thanks to everyone who helped get Orca Rescue off to a such a warm and wonderful start, here where the story of Springer’s rescue began. Paper Boat has a few copies left and (I think) will be getting more soon. Thanks especially to C&P for hosting us, and our awesome volunteers.

    I’m recommending this book to everyone I can.  It’s an easy and informative read and the illustrations are just right between detailed and primitive.  We’re lucky to have Donna as such a strong, well-versed advocate for this region’s orcas.

Sorry, comment time is over.
