Scenes From A Guerrilla Reading

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In support of Kevin Fedarko’s great new book, The Emerald Mile, which has been kept out of Barnes & Noble stores due to a disagreement between publisher Simon & Schuster and the retailer,  literary busker and author Bruce Barcott (The Measure of a Mountain, The Last Flight of the Scarlett Macaw, and countless memorable pieces in Outside and The New York Times Magazine) put together a little street reading slash protest. That’s Bruce reading outside the downtown Seattle Barnes & Noble today. Preach it, brother!

For outdoor-writer groupies (all three of them), here’s Chris Solomon, contributing writer for Outside, bringing Fedarko’s work to life.

And Mackenzie Funk, yet another outstanding writer for National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Outside, and author of the forthcoming book, Windfall, reading under the watchful eye of Seattle’s finest. You never know when these writer types are going to get out of control…

Three great outdoor writers, and uh, me, hamming it up for the lunchtime crowd.

I’m sure someone will have better pix or video, and I will link to it when it’s posted. These pix are all courtesy of Skyla, who, along with her brother, came along on the promise of lunch in the City. Here’s the kids’ reward. Now, if you’re looking for something to read, check out The Emerald Mile.

Some Nice Reviews

A big thank you to Outside and Growing My Kids for kind words about Closer To The Ground this week. Just home from a great book tour, and looking forward to turkey with family and friends. Hopefully this pummeling rain (we had almost 4 inches here at the house yesterday) and wind will let up enough so we can fish or pick chanterelles the next few days. Gotta have chanterelles for gravy and stuffing. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
