Discuss Mariners’ lows and highs with author

Mariners fans or foes can talk about the Seattle team and its ups and downs with Jon Wells, author of “Shipwrecked: A People’s History of the Seattle Mariners” at three area book signings.

Wells will sign books from 2 to 4 p.m. today at Costco in Everett, 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday at the Marysville Costco, and at 7 p.m. May 10 at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park.

In “Shipwrecked,” the longtime baseball writer takes the Mariners management to task for choosing profits over pennants, citing their failure to invest in players as the reason that the M’s are the only American League team never to make the World Series.

Wells is the publisher of the magazine, Grand Salami, which has been covering the Mariners since 1996. “Shipwrecked” lists at $15.95 and is available at bookstores. You also can purchase it at grandsalami.net/ for $12.50.

The Everett Costco is at 10200 19th Ave SE; 425-379-7451. The Marysville Costco is at 16616 Twin Lakes Ave.; 360-652-4530. Third Place Books is in the Forest Park Towne Center, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park; 206-366-3333.
