DSP/Harmony Ink crew at AWP 2014!

On Saturday, GRNW stopped by the Association of Writers and Writing Programs 2014 book fest (which was in Seattle this year), and we got to meet the wonderful crew from Dreamspinner Press and Harmony Ink Press!

It was a true pleasure to meet the amazing people behind DSP and Harmony Ink! (And it was awesome to see their AWP 2014 table with its array of amazing titles!)

(Here’s a pic of GRNW’s Tracy and Gay City library volunteer Karen sorting through the many boxes of books!)

THANK YOU, Dreamspinner and Harmony Ink, for your wonderful donation and for helping expand Gay City’s library! The library is a true resource for anyone looking for LGBT fiction and nonfiction books, and is open to the public for free borrowing. With over 6,000 books, it’s a real treasure for the Seattle reading community.
