Celebrate INDIES with Sharma Shields
Sharma Shields, award-winning author of My Favorite Monster and The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac, will share her favorite books and support one of her favorite indies. If you're also a proud supporter of INDIE bookstores, join the party at INDIES FIRST.
Sharma Shields' latest release, The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac, is a fantastical multi-generational tale about a family whose patriarch is consumed by the hunt for the mythical, elusive sasquatch he encountered in his youth.
Boldly imaginative, The Sasquatch Hunter's Almanac is a devastatingly real portrait of the demons that we as human beings all face.
“Sparkling…Eli’s quest is not unlike Ahab’s, and Shields writes with piercing insight about the monsters that keep us from connecting with one another in this funny and wise first novel.”—Booklist
“I’ve never read a stranger and more beautiful meditation on familial love and guilt than this novel. Plus, baby-snatching eagles, sea monsters, sasquatches, unicorns, octopus grandmas, and ghosts. Sharma Shields is my favorite weirdo in American letters.”—J. Robert Lennon, author of See You in Paradise
Sharma Shields has received the Autumn House Fiction Prize, the Tim McGinnis Award for Humor, a Grant for Artist Projects from Artist Trust, and the A.B. Guthrie Award for Outstanding Prose. She lives in Spokane with her husband and two young children.
