East Sierra (In-Person): Read the Book, Meet the Author
April 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Ridge Writers has announced the next “Read the Book, Meet the Author” event, David George on Thursday, April 7, 1:30 p.m. at Mac’s International Restaurant. Masks requested except while eating and drinking.
Red Rock Books has the book in stock. Participants buy the book and read it in advance of the get-together. Sign up at Red Rock Books. The ticket price of $32 includes tea at Mac’s with tea sandwiches, cheesecake, beverage, a copy of the book that the author will autograph, entry in a gift basket drawing, and convivial discussion with David George.
His debut book, “Granddad’s Garden: Stories of the Natural World,” fits into the current “climate lit” genre. Each chapter of “Granddad’s Garden” stands alone as a complete story, intended for parents and grandparents to enjoy reading to their children and grandchildren. The stories relate adventures that Granddad and his grandson experience while exploring nature together. Jeremy starts as a three-year-old and grows with each new chapter until the age of nine, showing his magical transformation into a mature child. Jeremy becomes more aware of the natural world around him as he grows, and Granddad reveals nature’s most important lessons through modern-day fables. With “Granddad’s Garden,” the author has created a feel-good book for troubling times.
He will also give the Ridge Writers program on Thursday evening at Ridgecrest Presbyterian Church, 6:30 p.m., no admission charge. This will not be the same as the afternoon’s presentation.
