Green Beanie Books Announces Latest In Series Of Beautiful Historical Picture Books Of Universities, Showcasing The Splendor Of UW

SEATTLE, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Green Beanie Books is announcing its newest book in a series of beautiful historical picture books of universities, featuring the University of Washington. UW Huskies from A to Z showcases everything 'Husky,' with little-known facts about the university, its alumni and legendary athletes. Authors Kristi Ascani and Leinora Stuart uncover the stories behind well-loved Husky icons, such as the history of the Quad and the landmark Yoshino cherry trees, the rise of Washington's crew team to be a perennial powerhouse, and even the inventor of the modern treadmill, Wayne Quinton, a pioneer in the field of bioengineering.

"Growing up in a family of Huskies, I have always known our football and crew programs were sources of great pride for the UW," said Ascani. "These two programs have been, and continue to be exceptional, and I am thrilled to share a glimpse of these legendary athletes and coaches' feats."

UW Huskies from A to Z features historical photos of campus and renowned alumni, as well as beautifully illustrated drawings by the father-daughter team of watercolor artists Stephan Moss and Naphtali Morden.

"After reading this book, I don't know how any Husky could not love our beloved school that much more," said Stuart.

This is the second book featuring fun and unique historical university facts released by Green Beanie Books. The first release, WSU Cougars from A to Z, has proven a popular read by people of all ages, and its author, Green Beanie Books founder Carla Nellis, is announcing that more university books, including University of Southern California, Oregon and Gonzaga, are in the works.

UW Huskies from A to Z is currently available at Costco stores in the Seattle area, and the authors will be signing books September 14 th from 11am3pm at Costco, 1175 N 205 th Street in Shoreline. Books are also available on Amazon, and at the Green Beanie website,
