Adventures In Bookland II

Well, the maiden voyage of the good ship Closer To The Ground launched last night at Eagle Harbor Books. We had a good crowd–about 40 people–on a rainy night when the Seahawks were playing on TV, so I was stoked. I was grateful to see so many familiar faces. It was also unexpectedly nerve-wracking, but I think it ended up going okay. This is a picture of me still signing books after they put all the chairs away, so I figure that’s a good sign.

We also had some nice media coverage this week. If you want to read the interview with the Portland Oregonian, click HERE. For the Q & A in The New York Times travel section, click HERE.

And now…on to Elliott Bay Book Co. in Seattle this Sunday (2:00pm), then Grass Roots Books in Corvallis, Oregon on Wednesday the 24th (7:00pm) and Powell’s City of Books in Portland on Thursday the 25th (7:30pm). Come on out! It Would be great to meet you in person.
