Portland author visits Bainbridge book store | Kitsap Week

Brian Doyle wowed readers with his last novel, “Mink River.” It received considerable acclaim and left fans wanting more tales about small-town residents on the Oregon coast.

Want no more.

Doyle’s latest novel, “The Plover,” was released in April, filled with new tales of characters from “Mink River.” But the new book is not a sequel; it’s a companion to “Mink River.” And instead of further exploring the coastal town of Neawanaka, “The Plover” goes to the Pacific Ocean to capture tales of the sea.

The Portland-based author will visit Eagle Harbor Book Co., at 1 p.m. on May 18 to discuss his new book and mingle with readers. Event organizers expect the book store to be packed for the appearance. The event is free, and Doyle will be available for a question and answer session, and to sign books.

Doyle has been published more than 13 times in various literature collections, but “Mink River” was his first full length novel. He is editor of Portland Magazine, a quarterly publication of the University of Portland.

Eagle Harbor Book Co. is located at 157 Winslow Way, Bainbridge Island.
