Booksigning a success

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on December 11, 2009

If you weren’t there Thursday evening to hear Erin and Hig, you missed an exciting evening.
Erin & Hig present their journey

Forty Seldovians turned out despite the December dark to hear Erin McKittrick and Bret Higman present a slide show and lecture on their 4000-mile trip from Seattle to the start of the Aleutian Islands—a trip made entirely by foot, ski and pack raft.

Erin read a selection of seasonal chapters, accompanied by photos taken during that portion of their journey as well as short videos recorded as they went. A big hit with the crowd was the video of an (estimated) 11 1/2-foot tall brown bear making a good decision.

Following the presentation, Erin signed copies of her book about the journey while Hig demonstrated some of the equipment they used on the trip and answered questions from attendees.

Anyone who missed the signing but who still wants copies of Erin’s book can contact her through the book’s webpage.

The library thanks Susan B. English School for loan of some of the projection equipment used for the presentation.
