The Ashokan Way - Reading & Signing with Author Gail Straub at Catskill Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper

Author Gail Straub will read from her new book, "The Ashokan Way" (Homebound, March 2018), which chronicles a year's worth of walks near the Ashokan Reservoir, at the Catskill Interpretive Center on Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m. For the past 35 years, Straub has walked the Catskill Mountain Watershed almost daily and grown to rely on the wild as a portal to self-understanding and spiritual restoration. The book is at once a lyrical form of devotion, a vital addition to the male-dominated catalog of nature writing and a powerful call to recognize wilderness and unadulterated open space as key to our humanity, especially in divisive and tech-addled times like today.
