New book delves into recent past
The history of the San Juan Islands does not end with the Pig War.
In fact, author JoAnn Roe has compiled a collection of lively stories from the San Juans’ more modern era into her latest book: The San Juan Islands: Into the 21st Century.
Roe will be at Griffin Bay Bookstore, Saturday, Oct. 20, 2-4 p.m., to chat about island history and the book.
A summer resident of Blakely Island, Roe is a recipient of numerous awards from the National Press Association and Society of American Travel Writers. Her latest work concentrates on the last 50-75 years of island history, based in part on interviews with more than 100 islanders. For info, 378-5511.
