I am honored to have Closer to the Ground chosen by the Timberland Regional Library System as a Timberland Reads Together book for 2014. It’s humbling to look at the list of recent books and authors chosen for this great community reads program, and to join them is pretty awesome. Better yet, they’re putting together a series of fun events at several branches, where I will talk and read, sign books, answer questions and show some slides. They’ve even commissioned the Bushwick Book Club of Seattle to write some music “inspired by” Closer to the Ground. Here are the times/dates:
October 1st, 2014: Tumwater Library, 6:00pm.
October 2nd, 2014: Aberdeen Timberland Library, 2:00pm.
October 2nd, 2014: North Mason Timberland Library in Belfair, 6:30pm.
October 4th, 2014: Centralia Timberland Library, 2:30pm.

I’m honored that the Timberland Regional Library system has selected Closer to the Ground for it’s 2014 Timberland Reads Together community reading program. TRL’s main branch is in Olympia, WA, but they also have 27 branches covering five counties across Southwest Washington. From what I hear, they put on a fantastic community book program. For the announcement and information, click HERE.
To kick the whole thing off, I will be in several different TRL branches to read from and talk about the book during the first week of October. They’re also going to have the Bushwick Book Club of Seattle writing and performing original music “inspired by” Closer to the Ground (No joke…these guys are serious!) along with various other events, discussions and programming. I will update this once the dates, times and locations are squared away.
So…if you live in Mason, Thurston, Lewis, Pacific or Grays Harbor counties, or happen to be nearby in early October, come on out to one of the TRL events. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.
