Karen Babine will be at Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery on Saturday, October 22 for a reading and signing of Water and What We Know. She will be bringing apples and her grandma's special cider to share with attendees.
How does land determine what kind of people grow in that soil? In essays that travel from the wildness of Lake Superior to the order of an apple orchard, Karen Babine searches out the stories that water has written on human consciousness and traces an ethic of place, a way to understand the essence of inhabiting a place deeply rooted in personal stories.
"What is the effect of place on character? Of our birth landscape on how we see the world? This wonderful, meditative book asks all the right questions." —Will Weaver
