Q&A with David Lowenthal at Book Passage, March 25, 2017

I was EXTRA-delighted and honored to share the stage with one of my most esteemed intellectual heroes, geographer David Lowenthal, at Book Passage Bookstore in Corte Madera on saturday, March 25, 2017.  I have been reading David's incredible work on landscapes, preservation, and heritage since my earliest days in graduate school, and was over the moon when he agreed to write the Foreword for my book.

Thanks to everyone in the surprisingly-sizable crowd, considering it was one of the first sunny saturdays we've had in months!  and here are a few pictures, taken by friends:

Fabulous author Jonah Raskin and I have a wonderful Q&A conversation at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes Station, January 22, 2017 -- and despite the howling wind and rain that day, about 70 people came out!  here are a few photographs taken by my friend Paula Hammett from that lovely evening:
