|Book release parties — book fans and participants can mix and mingle. One is near you!|
In addition to the parties listed below, there will be lots of talks—from casual bookstore readings to Powerpoint slideshows—and walks recreating adventure chapter hikes. See the full talk/walk list here.
July 26 Wed at 5 to 8 pm
9850 Walnut Hill Ln #405 at Audelia, Dallas, TX 75238
SE corner of Lakeridge Village Shopping Center.
Look for dark blue exterior and wild murals. Lots of parking behind the building. Spacious indoor dining and a big patio with mega fans is dog friendly and has a kids’ play area. Vector Brewing makes great pizza. Come early for some free bites on my tab. In addition to endless craft beers, they have ciders and seriously neat non-alcohol drinks. Italian-ish menu with pizza, sandwiches, salads, and fun stuff.
Aug 1 Tue at 5 to 8 pm
Funky Picnic Brewery & Café
401 Bryan Ave, unit 117, Fort Worth, TX 76104
On the eastern edge of the Southside area. A spectacular array of craft beers and chic cocktails. Creative sandwiches and regular, portabella, and black-bean burgers (with suggested beer pairings!). Outlandishly fun ice-cream floats and great non-alcoholic options
Aug. 5 Sat at 4:30 to 6 pm
Thrive Nature Park
1951 S. Valley Pkwy. Lewisville, TX 75067
Thrive Multigenerational Recreation Center
Friends of LLELA will put out a light spread of wine and nibbles. The party will include a short reading of Richard’s Wild Ride, a section of the mega LLELA chapter that was edited from the book for length by Timber. It’s quite funny!
Thrive Nature Park is way cool, gets lots of love from Elm Fork Master Naturalists. The 23-acre park of Eastern Cross Timbers and prairie has nature play areas, pollinator meadows, bird blind, and paved perimeter trail.
|Helping Amy Out|
Lots of talks from summer and fall. Some are casual bookstore readings. Others are full-blown Powerpoint talks with lots of info and photos. Plus several specialty talks on particular areas or topics like nature at night. And lots of walks, many recreating the hikes from the book’s adventure chapters. One is bound to be near you. See the full talk/walk list here.
You can buy a copy of Wild DFW at any of these events (except those in bookstores). Or if you pre-bought, bring yours to get it personally signed. Would love to see you!
On the Wild DFW purchase page, you’ll find options from Dallas-based indies to national booksellers. Be sure to check out the Pretty Things and Cool Stuff fundraiser promo package, a fundraiser for GreenSourceDFW.
