I will be reading from my new book, Dancing with the Gods: Reflections on Life and Art, at the South Dakota Festival of Books in Brookings, South Dakota, on the 22nd of September, at 10 a.m. Dancing with the Gods is a series of thoughts and reflections on the inner life of the artist, written for anyone who practices an art form or wants to understand some of the often unseen joys and challenges of the creative life. I might also read one of my favorite pieces from my recently published book, Native Echoes: Listening to the Spirit of the Land. I encourage you to show up. The South Dakota Festival of Books is a wonderful venue — very intimate and convivial. You can usually get a few words with any of your favorite authors and have a chance to brush shoulders with a good group of readers and all around friendly people. Here’s a link to the website: http://sdhumanities.org/festival-of-books/. See you there.
