Date: September, 25th 2013 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Parnassus Books and the Ketchikan Public Library are pleased to present Author Christine Byl and her recently published book “Dirt Work: an education in the woods” at 6:30 pm. A 17-year trail crew veteran, Byl lives off the grid near Denali National Park where she owns and operates a small trail design and construction business. “Dirt Work” is a lively and lyrical account of her apprenticeship on a National Park trail crew and what she discovers about nature, gender, and the value of hard work, as well as an account of living in the wilderness in Montana and Alaska. Byl’s work has appeared in The Sun, Glimmer Train Stories, Crazyhorse, and other magazines, journals and anthologies. Call Amanda at 228-2306 for more information.
