Reading In Ballard

A bit more self promotion here, so please bear with me. I will be reading from Closer to the Ground and  (for those of you thinking “been there done that”) some new material–potentially even an excerpt from the novel I’m working on–this coming Tuesday, November 7th, 7:00pm, at the Patagonia Ballard Work Wear store. If you aren’t from around here, that’s in Seattle, north of the Ship Canal. If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to check out the new hard-working Patagonia gear, enjoy all the awesome food and drink options in Ballard, and listen to some words. Thanks, everyone. Hope you are all well.

Live From New York…

Great book event “in conversation with” my brother…and a rare chance for me to hang out on his turf and talk about books, writing, family and food. That’s Adrian and me fielding questions after the reading, Patagonia Upper West Side, New York City.

Huge thanks to Adrian for thoughtful questions and an amazing food tour of NY (more on that later), to my sister-in-law Sarah for putting together a fantastic post-event party, and to the crew at Patagonia UWS for a fun event. Also to our mom for making the trek, the Brennan family for being there, and to good friend Smarty, for a surprise appearance in the Big City. A night to remember for sure.


Vancouver Book Event

Hello British Columbia! I will be in Vancouver this Wednesday, April 28th, to talk about and read from Closer to the Ground. Come to the Patagonia Vancouver store at 7:00pm, we’ll talk wild food, foraging, conservation, and kids in the outdoors. There will be food and beer. I’m stoked for a fun evening in my favorite province. Did I mention there’s beer? Hope you are all well.


Seattle Book Event

PAT_S16_Closer_BookTour-Seattle

Puget Sound friends! I will be talking about foraging, fishing, writing, kids in the outdoors and conservation with my good friend, author Bruce Barcott, on Tuesday, April 12th at the Seattle Patagonia store. At some point, I will read a few stories from Closer to the Ground as well. Doors open at 7:00pm, talk and reading starts at 7:30. If nothing else, come for the snacks from Patagonia Provisions and beer.

The real treat of the evening, though, is the opportunity to meet Bruce. He’s an incredible writer and thinker, and the author of some of my favorite books: The Measure of a Mountain, The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw, and most recently, Weed the People. And since he’s going to be asking the questions, I guess I’m not really sure what exactly we’ll be talking about. But knowing Bruce, I’m sure it will be interesting.

I’m stoked for the event and looking forward to meeting everyone. Come on down if you can. Hope you are all well.


San Francisco Event

Super excited for the book event this Wednesday at Patagonia San Francisco. If you happen to be in the Bay Area (or if you know someone who is, please share this) come on down to the Patagonia store, 770 North Point at 6:30pm on Wednesday, March 16th. We’ll talk about foraging, fishing, wild food, getting kids outside and whatever else anyone’s interested in, then read a few excerpts from Closer to the Ground. Doors open at 6:00pm.

I think we’ll have a great time. Looking forward to meeting everyone in person. Hope you are all well.
