The World’s Biggest Truck ... and More
Posted by Ari Goelman
Having just finished our event in the beautiful Fernie library, we are now packing up for our early departure tomorrow. The event was fun—Kathryn read from her book, Lucky, and talked about her goals in writing Lucky. I read the first chapter of The Path of Names, and a short bit of an old short story of mine called ‘4 Short Parables on the Theme of Travel.’ (It being an entirely adult audience, I thought it would be fun to read something for adults, too.) Then Kathryn and I fielded questions together and each asked the other insightful and extremely interesting questions, provoking equally insightful and extremely interesting answers.
The last few days have been busy, filled with school visits, and our visits to various sights in the Kootenays, including a giant truck and an even more enormous open pit mine. (see my blog here for lots of photos and more details.)
