New Broadside Commemorates
Terry Tempest Williams Event
Point Reyes Books is publishing a beautiful new broadside printed by Richard Seiber Letterpress with words by Terry Tempest Williams and art by Tom Killion to commemorate the October 22 benefit. The broadside celebrates Kate and Steve's 14-year stewardship of the bookstore and the centennial of the National Park Service. Order a signed copy of the broadside ($25.00).
By the way, we’re putting together a team of volunteers to assist at this very special event. We’d love your help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

2017 Geography of Hope Conference:
Ancestors & The Land
The 2017 Geography of Hope Conference (GOH) takes place on March 17 to 19, in Point Reyes, part of the traditional homelands of the Coast Miwok Indians. As native people here and throughout America and the world have taught us, we can best care for the land by knowing its history, by cherishing its stories, and by actively working to protect it. GOH hopes to stimulate a conversation honoring ancestral connections to this and other landscapes—whether Native American, European, African, Asian, Hispanic, or elsewhere—that will lead to dialogues between generations and cultures to help us reconnect to place and restore balance to Mother Earth. Presented by Black Mountain Circle. Watch for details.
