Sharon Mentyka, Think Smart, Be Fearless

Join one of our neighborhood writers, Sharon Mentyka, at the launch of her new book, Think Smart, Be Fearless: A Biography of Bill Gates. Her previous book, Chasing at the Surface, inspired by the real-life visit of orca pod L-25 to Dyes Inlet, has been a middle-reader favorite in our store since it came out in 2016. Her new book features another local celebrity: Bill Gates. An oversized kids' nonfiction book aimed at early elementary-school readers, it's the second in Sasquatch Books' new biography series on notable Northwesterners (the first was on Beverly Cleary). We're delighted to have Sharon at the store to discuss these local notables, as well as writing fiction and nonfiction for kids, and whatever else you'd like to ask her about.
