I hope you can join me Tuesday afternoon, October 21, at the California Historical Society (CHS) to launch our new enhanced ebook Yosemite: A Storied Landscape. It's also a great opportunity to see this unique exhibition of artifacts and stories from Yosemite's history. CHS is in downtown San Francisco at 678 Mission.
Events start at noon, when authors Ken Brower, Jeff Rogers, and myself will be joined by Yosemite Conservancy President Mike Tollefson and the historical society's Anthea Hartig for a big-screen presentation and readings from the multimedia ebook. Rebecca Solnit will be joining us later. We'll have some of the author's books available to sign, and I'll do another big-screen presentation at 3, and will be at the gallery all day.
I sure hope you can join us and will check out the book, which is on iTunes (free sample available). It includes illuminating stories, pictures, and videos on Yosemite's native people, soldiers, artists, climbers, promoters and protectors. (UC Berkeley Newscenter did a nice piece recently describing it.) For me, it's been a wonderfully intense work of love and discovery.
Note: 20 percent of all proceeds from the ebook go to support Yosemite Conservancy's restoration and education projects in the park.
