I’m super excited to announce that tomorrow, The Tangled Nest will be honored by a stop from David B. Williams on the “virtual book tour” for his new book, Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology. David is a brilliant geologist, an original thinker, a terrific writer, and the author of one of my favorite books, The Seattle Street-Smart Naturalist. He’s also a friend and kindred spirit, working to find and share the beauty of the wild, natural world in everyday life, even from an urban setting. His knowledge of the stories that inhere in urban stone buildings has changed the way I walk through my city (I’m suddenly surrounded by fossils, and rock formations, millions of years old…) Tune in tomorrow–we’re in for a treat.
David blogs at Stories in Stone: The Interfingering Between People and Rock (I was slightly alarmed by the word “interfingering,” but David assures me that this is a perfectly academic geological term), and the complete schedule for his virtual book tour can be found there.
