I just got home from the FIRST (but definitely not the last) book signing for the book, THESE TREES. It was in Tryon, North Carolina. I had the great pleasure and good fortune of being accompanied by Carol Pearce Bjorlie, one of the poets in the book. Carol is also a professional cellist so she played several songs on the cello for us.
Carol also read her four poems about trees that are in the book and I read poems for half a dozen poets who were not there in person today. In addition to poetry and music I also talked about my relationship with the book, why I decided to create it, problems I encountered and some of my most memorable tree photographs. Next book signing is the Book Launch Party, Saturday, August 26 at 2pm, 60 Caledonia Road in Asheville.
Ruthie photographs trees because she loves them.
