The trees, shrubs, and cacti come alive suddenly. I admire anything that can get by on so little, that can bide away in obscurity--waiting--ready to spring forth when the opportunity strikes. Surely there is meaning here.
The reading tour and documentary project began in my home state of Florida, in late July. We visited towns in the mid to lower peninsula, profiling independent bookstores and the dedicated people who keep them alive.
Further readings will be held primarily at independent booksellers, libraries, and other locally owned businesses. If you'd like to schedule a stop in your town, please drop us a line.
