Sunday, Mar. 8, 2 PM
Step into Nature book coverLocal poet, artist, teacher, and author Patrice Vecchione received unexpected inspiration when, unable to ride her beloved bicycle, she took to walking, not along our stunning coast but on the tree-lined trails of Jacks Peak Park. Inspiration came from wind whispering to the trees, hidden animals scurrying through the brush, flicker feathers found on the path that deepened her imagination and restored her spirit, and then it led to the writing of her new book Step into Nature: Nurturing Imagination & Spirit in Everyday Life, from Beyond Words/Atria, Simon & Schuster. Join us for a lively discussion with Patrice who’ll talk about the writing of her book, everyday inspiration, and the gifts that came come from walking among trees.
