The Dark Side of the Moon Readings

My friend, Mike Medberry, will read from his just published memoir, The Dark Side of the Moon, the first chapter of which was published in The Writer’s Workshop Review. Reading is this Thursday at 7 p.m. at the U Bookstore in Seattle. Hope to see you there!

I’m a former MFA student at UW and am coming in from Idaho to read from my book, “On the Dark Side of the Moon” at the University Bookstore (at 4326 University Way NE, Seattle) this Thursday, Jan 10th, at 7pm. Details below. Hope to see you there!

The Dark Side of the Moon is the story of my having a serious stroke while I was leading a group of conservationists out into the wild country of Craters of the Moon area in southern Idaho. I was flown in to Pocatello. While I recovered, Secretary of the Interior, Bruce Babbitt, came out to visit the wicked lava flows in Craters of the Moon and finally recommended that the area be protected as a 750,000 acre national monument, which President Clinton did during the last days of his presidency. My story is one of recovering myself at the same time that the national monument was being designated and protected. It has a happy ending, which is why I will be there, I suppose….
