On Saturday, January 18, Island Books will be hosting renowned local reporter Julie Blacklow as she speaks about her new memoir. Julie will read from her book, answer questions, and chat about her career and the writing process. Drinks and snacks will be available. Come and learn about this Seattle icon and her incredible journey!

“Fearless—Diary of a Badass Reporter” is the narrative of a most uncommon and astonishing life—where even as a teenager Julie Blacklow displayed qualities that marked her as a natural for reporting. Courage, tenacity, and a willingness to get in anyone’s face if it served her mission to help people were in her DNA. Her intolerance of injustice made her especially popular—or unpopular—depending on which side of the fence you sat. She fit right in at Seattle’s KING-TV, where the owner instilled an ethos of excellence, honesty, and always doing the right thing.
