We are excited to welcome local author Doug Walsh to Island Books in celebration of his upcoming release, Tailwinds Past Florence. Doug is an author, a bicyclist, and a travel lecturer, discussing his two-year journey on bike from Seattle to Singapore. The Pacific Northwest Writers Association-award-winning novel follows much of the same route he and his wife took, while incorporating fictional historical characters in a contemporary story. One of Doug’s goals with this book was to wrap a magical love story around an authentic bicycle touring experience.
