Tonight we’re joined by two Washington writers whose work has been recognized by the the 2016 Washington State Book Awards. Mark Rozema is the author of the essay collection, Road Trip (Red Hen), winner in the Biography/Memoir category.  "Rozema's easy, narrative prose, filled with the names and details of plants, mountains, rivers, animals, the towns he passes through, often becomes beautifully lyrical, touching the power of what wild land and sky together mean to the human soul."---Pattiann Rogers.  Ana Maria Spagna’s book Reclaimers (University of Washington Press), was a finalist in the same category.  Spagna will also read from her first young adult novel, The Luckiest Scar on Earth (Torrey), which features a young snowboarder whose backcountry adventure takes a tragic turn.
