Hello there, and good morning. For starters, I just want to say thank you for the messages you’ve sent to me via Twitter or Facebook or through this web site. I love hearing from readers, and I’m glad to hear that the book has been hiking its way toward some far-flung places. I’m starting to hear from readers overseas, and from readers who are beaming messages to me from places that I thought were truly off-the-grid. I guess nowhere is really off the grid anymore!
Anyways, welcome back from your trip to Yosemite (or wherever you happened to camp over the past few days.) Just wanted to let you know that I’ll be going on the radio on Monday once again — this time for New Hampshire’s NPR, NHPR, to discuss my book, from 9 to 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Here is more information. So if you just so happen to live on the West Coast and are up very early, you can still listen in through the miracle of live streaming. If you would like to stream this thing, try this link. Should work. Perhaps try the “Live Flash Player.” I think you’ll get a kick out of this conversation. The broadcasters really spent some time with this book and they are asking a lot of thoughtful questions. This next week will be very busy indeed. On Thursday, August 25th, I am going to celebrate the centennial of the National Park System by participating in an after-hours gala at the California Academy of Sciences, during an event that will also feature stargazing and dancing and survivalism and more. The fun begins at 6 p.m. On Saturday, August 27th, at 1 p.m. I will be speaking at the Book Passage store in Corte Madera, California. I really appreciate the fact that you are going to this reading! It means a lot to me. Looks like I will be doing events on and off all the way through March of next year.
Thanks for checking in. See you very soon.
