Elsewhere in Books | A memoir about a cheeseburger and 24 ways you can help end poverty

‘Our Day to End Poverty,’ 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at Eagle Harbor Books.

Keeping with the week's theme of art that matters (with our feature story on the new film series Matinees that Matter) Seattle author Jeffrey Keenan, a global poverty activist on a multitude of fronts, comes to Bainbridge to discuss one of them — this book which he's co-authored with Shannon Daley-Harris and Karen Speerstra.

Inspired by the bestseller “50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth,” “Our Day To End Poverty” offers practical actions anyone can take during the course of a 24-hour day. The 24 short, fact-filled chapters aim to connect each part of the reader’s day — from breakfast to bedtime — with actions that can be taken to help fight global poverty.

ALSO CHECK OUT: Seattle author, journalist, broadcast writer and producer Greg Palmer, who’ll be reading from his memoir Cheese Deluxe, centered on the famous cheeseburgers he’d serve while working as a cook at the Samoa Drive-In on Mercer Island the summer after graduating high school in 1965. He’ll be reading at 3 p.m., Feb. 22 at Eagle Harbor, 157 Winslow Way on Bainbridge. Info:
