September wrapped up an exciting year of sharing my memoir, Hiking Naked. I was fortunate to do a tour in the Northeast and Midwest this month, and here are some photos from events in Connecticut and Chicago.
I discovered how much I enjoy events that include interviews/conversations with others, like the ones I did at Seminary Co-op Bookstores in Chicago with Homebound Publications author Theodore Richards and at Beacon Hill Friends House in Boston with Quaker author Debbie Humphries.
Many thanks to my gracious hosts and people who joined me in conversation about writing memoir, life in Stehekin, and seeking balance.
*Afterthoughts are my blog version of a practice followed in some Quaker meetings. After meeting for worship ends, people continue in silence for a few more minutes during which they’re invited to share thoughts or reflect on the morning’s worship. I’ve adopted the form here for last-day-of-the-month brief reflections on headlines, quotes, books, previous posts, maybe even bumper stickers.
