WSU Press hosts 30th annual Holiday Book Fair

Washington State University Press will host its 30th annual Holiday Book Fair on Wednesday, Dec. 8, from 11 a.m.–3 p.m., in the Terrell Library Atrium on the Pullman campus.

The fair highlights books published throughout the year and is open to everyone. Festivities include steep discounts of 20-50% on all titles, drawings for free books, and complimentary refreshments. Sale prices will be valid for phone and online orders throughout the week, Dec. 6-12.

Specializing in regional topics, new titles explore the life of a Moscow, Idaho con man, the Nez Perce struggle to repatriate their exploited heritage, Manhattan Project-era racism in the Tri‑Cities, the history of WSU’s rowing club, political incivility in state legislatures, Seattle’s early transit system, the Upward Bound program at the University of Idaho, and a Spokane railroader’s experiences. A new children’s picture book celebrates Cougar football game days. All of the featured 2021 Holiday Book Fair titles can be viewed online.

Founded in 1928 and revitalized in the 1980s, WSU Press concentrates on telling unique, focused stories about the Northwest.
