Did you read Julia Harrison’s interview and start craving more fruit, sweets, and Washington State history? Here are a few things that can help satisfy:

 

The Orchardist

Amanda Coplin’s 2013 debut novel follows two fruit-thieving girls and the stoic grower that catches them stealing from his Pacific Northwest grove. The gripping story of the evil that follows the girls and the grief in the grower’s past, combined with Coplin’s lush descriptions of her characters’ rural surroundings, sent this novel to the New York Times Bestseller List. Track down a copy at a local bookstore like Elliott Bay Books or the University Book Store.
