Corvallis ReadingPosted: October 25, 2012
Had a great time at Grass Roots Books in my old home town last night. This is me with good friends and fellow fish-heads, John Larison, Andy Landforce and Ted Leeson. John and Ted are both wonderful writers whose work I have long admired, and they helped immensely throughout the process of writing Closer to the Ground. John is also a hunter, forager and cook who treated me to a fabulous pre-event dinner of elk burgers and chanterelle pizza with his lovely family.
Andy, now 94 years old, is one of the most important people in my life. He taught me how to fish for steelhead and has provided guidance and wisdom ever since. His spirit runs throughout the book. It was a real honor to have these guys at the reading last night.
I’m at Powell’s City of Books in Portland tonight at 7:30pm. Come on out if you can. It would be great to meet you.
