Tim Cahill, Author of Hold the Enlightenment and Lost in my own Backyard: a Walk in Yellowstone National Park
Book Passage – Corte Madera
51 Tamal Vista Dr., Corte Madera
We have a real treat in store for you at our May 3rd Left Coast Writers Literary Salon. Travel writer Tim Cahill is in town and will be speaking that night. Tim, who has authored many, many books including Jaguars Ripped My Flesh, A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg, Pass The Butterworms, Pecked To Death By Ducks, Hold The Enlightenment, and Lost in my own Backyard: a Walk in Yellowstone National Park, was a founding editor of Outside magazine and has been known to make readers laugh and cry in the space of a few minutes. He is also an expert on what makes a story work and the creator of Tim’s choo-choo, which is a dynamite way to quickly put an article together.
Expect an exciting evening. Tim is always full of surprises and amazing tales. The guy has been everywhere—including some places you’d never want to go. A regular part of the faculty at the Book Passage Travel Writers and Photographers Conference, he is currently teaching graduate and undergraduate writing classes at a state university, here, in northern California. He is one of our best loved adventure travel writers and a great innovator in the travel and non-fiction genres. Tim lives in Livingston, Montana.
