Many thanks to Barnes and Noble in Medford, Oregon, for hosting my book chat on Saturday; also, I appreciate the brave souls who came in from the beautiful spring day to hear me. My wife Sue’s paintings, which illustrate my book, drew rave reviews from the audience.
About 25 people braved snowy conditions to attend my book talk at Bloomsbury Books in Ashland, Oregon, last evening. They filled the loft area of our beloved downtown bookstore, where I shared adventure stories about my journey on the Camino de Santiago, read brief excerpts from Camino Sunrise, and related tales from my writing experience. I was nervous about my first book talk; the experience felt quite different from political science lectures and talks to my trekking classes. Thank you to Bloomsbury Books and to the hardy people who brought their enthusiasm for distance trekking and/or reading!
