Leslie Carol Roberts presents "Where I Walk"
Author Leslie Carol Roberts will read from her book, Here Is Where I Walk: Episodes From a Life in the Forest, at Readers’ Books on Thursday, May 30th at 7:00 p. m. San Francisco’s Presidio National Park provides the lush setting of both Roberts’s walks and her series of meditations on all aspects of life. The Presidio is America’s only residential national park to exist in an urban setting; it is home to urban coyotes, banana slugs, and manzanita along with a sense of peace that invites meditation and introspection. Roberts, who has called the area her home for over a decade and is where she raised her two children as a single mom turns her daily walks into revelations of deeper meaning. Through both observation and recollection, Roberts divides her book into Episodes and accompanying Notebooks, taking her readers along with her daily journeys and inviting them to take similar mindful trips of their own.
Leslie Carol Roberts is an author, journalist, and essayist. She is also professor and chair of the MFA Writing Program at California College of the Arts in San Francisco, California.
