Terranexus with David K. Leff

Join us Friday November 30th at 7:00pm for an evening that reminds us how important spending time with nature is for all of us on Earth. David returns to Byrd’s Books and will read from and discuss his latest book, Terranexus: Connection and Meaning in Ordinary Places. This book is the latest in the Little Bound Book series from Midpoint Trade Books.

About the book:

Connect with ordinary places close to home. Discover inspiration and beauty nearby through the art of deep travel. Intrigue and wonder beckon just beyond your doorstep.

Reading David’s beautifully written essay will make you realize that the wonders of nature lie right beyond your doorstep. So grab your kids, turn off your cell phones, and enjoy them. 

-Gina McCarthy, former U. S. EPA Administrator

Leff has given us a permission slip and a directive: go forth and see. Travel local, travel deep. See the beauty in ‘hard-used places.’ Canoe polluted and pillaged rivers. Everything ordinary is beautiful. Go forth and make your own terranexus, your own ‘profound connection’ to your home ground. Celebrate your place in earth–there is no other like it.

-Howard Mansfield, author of Dwelling in Possibility
