Join Jonathan Raban and Sasquatch Books for the paperback release of Driving Home: An American Journey. Driving Home collects two decades of Raban’s essays—travelogues and commentary that chart a course through American history, the Pacific Northwest, and current events.

Raban is the award-winning author, most recently, of the novels Surveillance and Waxwings. His nonfiction includes Passage to Juneau and Bad Land, among other works. Born in Britain, the internationally-acclaimed writer has made Seattle his home for the past two decades.

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Tickets and reservations are not required. Parking is available in the Central Library garage for $5 after 5 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsor Gary Kunis, media sponsor The Seattle Times and presented in partnership with The Elliott Bay Book Company. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
