This Wednesday, December 11th, I will be back in my old stomping grounds (I grew up in Corvallis) for a book event double-header, presented by the Calapooia Watershed Council, Greenbelt Land Trust, Ten Rivers Food Web, Bluebacks Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Albany Public Library:
6:00-7:30pm Albany Public Library. I will read from and discuss Closer to the Ground with novelist John Larison, followed by question/answer session and book signing. Most likely topics of conversation: Foraging, conservation, kids in the outdoors, wild food, importance of place, etc. We’ll also have books for sale in case you need a copy or two for holiday gifts.
8:00pm-??:?? Cascadia Fly Shop. We’ll pack up in Albany and hightail it back to Corvallis for a more informal–and fish-centric–talk at the fly shop. I have some new, fishier writings to read and will talk about fishing, conservation and anything else anyone wants to discuss. Followed by book sales and signing. I also hear they have beer.
So…if you’re in the area, please come on out to one or both of the events. Good excuse to get out of the house after this long, chilly week, and you can knock off some items from your shopping list while you’re at it.
Or just come out to listen and talk. Either way, I’m looking forward to meeting you in person. Hope you are all well.
