Pacific Northwest Book Awards shortlist announced

The Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association has announced its shortlist for 2013, a distinguished list of books published in 2012, chosen by independent booksellers in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.

The Seattle area is well-represented. Here’s the list: up to six winners will be chosen and announced in January 2013 (hometown follows the author’s name):

“Blasphemy” by Sherman Alexie (Seattle).

“The Art of Urban Sketching” by Gabriel Campanario (Seattle).

“The Orchardist” by Amanda Coplin (Portland).

“Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher” by Timothy Egan (Seattle).

“The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving” by Jonathan Evison (Bainbridge Island).

“Plume” by Kathleen Flenniken (Seattle).

“The Snow Child” by Eowyn Ivy (Palmer, Alaska).

“On the Spectrum of Possible Deaths” by Lucia Perillo (Olympia).

“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” by Maria Semple (Seattle).

“Glaciers” by Alexis M. Smith (Portland).

“Wild” by Cheryl Strayed (Portland).

“Alif the Unseen” by G. Willow Wilson (Seattle).

I can’t resist pointing out that Campanario is the Seattle Times’ very own Seattle Sketcher. Way to go, Gabi.
