Wednesday, June 5 at 6:30 PM
Reservations Requested. Please call or email the store.
For readers of The Stranger in the Woods and H is for Hawk, a beautifully written and emotionally rewarding
memoir about a father, his three sons, and a scrappy 100-acre piece of land in rural Michigan.
"Wise, beautiful, honest writing about a landscape I love."
-- Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of Mothers Tell Your Daughters
"My favorite book of the year so far! My great-grandfather had a three-room family cabin outside of Ellsworth where my grandfather taught me to fish as a kid along with a parade of aunts, uncles, and cousins. This book brought back memories of that and family dynamics. Kuipers' views on the environment and our deep connection to it are related to the reader nearly like poetry. A joyful, entertaining, and moving reading experience." Robin
Dean Kuipers is an author, journalist and editor with longstanding interests in ecology, music and good writing about anything at all. He is the author of the 2009 nonfiction book, Operation Bite Back, which is the story of eco-radical Rod Coronado and the use of domestic terrorism charges against U.S. environmental activists. His book Burning Rainbow Farm, about the 2001 FBI shooting of two libertarian pot activists on a farm in Michigan, was selected as a 2007 Michigan Notable Book. He grew up in Mattawan, Michigan, graduated from Kalamazoo College, and now lives in Los Angeles.
