Upcoming Book Events


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.

Olympia Fun


What a great evening at the Olympia Timberland Library! Big thanks to the Sweeney family for a fantastic pre-event dinner, to Mary for putting the event together, and to Nikki McClure for drawing the crowd. We had a full room, good questions and conversation, and Nikki made fir-tip tea for everyone. Lots of fun. I felt lucky to be a part of it.

I have a number of local/regional events in the works coming up, and a potential East Coast tour later in the spring. Dates and locations aren’t locked in yet, but I will let you know as soon as they are. Stay tuned for details. Hope you are all well.
