Karen Auvinen will speak about and sign her new book, Rough Beauty: Forty Seasons of Mountain Living, on Tuesday, June 5th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
When a fire incinerates every word she has ever written and all of her possessions — except for her dog Elvis and a few singed artifacts — Karen Auvinen flees to a primitive cabin in the Rockies to live in solitude as a writer and to embrace all the beauty and brutality nature has to offer. Rough Beauty is a lyric exploration of and homage to her forty seasons in the mountains, embracing the unpredictability and grace of living with the forces of nature while making peace with her own wildness.
