Local Author Book Signing at Kazoo Books

November 14th, 2009

On November 14 I joined Coolidge J. Bligh and Gary Cialdella at Kazoo Books - a great local / independent book store - for a local author's book signing. I was there with The Story of Snow and appreciate all the folks who came by for a copy.

It was also great to catch up a bit with Gary Cialdella, whose collection of urban landscape photos called The Calumet Area: An American Place was recently published jointly by the University of Illinois and the Brauer Museum of Art. I first met Gary almost a decade ago at a workshop with Mark Klett at the Kalamazoo Institute of Art. Gary's landscape photography is very inspiring, and if ever you tire of snow crystal photos, you should take a look at his book. It's great stuff and an inspiration to all of us who love B&W landscape work.

The Story of Snow!

Book Cover: The Story of Snow

Yippie! On Monday I received an advance copy of my new book – The Story of Snow: The Science of Winter’s Wonder. This project has been in the works for over a year, during which time I’ve been privileged to work with physicist Jon Nelson and the great people at Chronicle Books. The book will be available in stores later this year – you can read about it in Chronicle Book’s catalog here.
