Two events are planned in upstate New York this summer. One of my favorite bookstores, Spotty Dog Books & Ale, will host a book signing in Hudson at 5 PM on Saturday, June 22. An attraction at any event at the Spotty Dog is the quality of the beer. Also, the CAS Arts Center in Livingston Manor in the Catskills is planning a slide talk and book signing from 3-5 P.M. on Friday, July 5 (the Friday of 4th of July Weekend). For more info on both of these events, please visit the web sites of the organizations.
Back in the city in the fall, the Battery Park City Parks Conservancy will host an illustrated talk, book signing, and tree walk at 2 P.M. on Sunday, October 6 at 6 River Terrace in Battery Park City.
My six-session spring photography workshop at Wave Hill, focusing on trees, is now in session, but fall workshops are planned! For info on workshops check the Wave Hill web site.
