Last Thursday Jenny drove down to Salem, OR to be with her Dad as he went in for cataract surgery. The surgery was successful. Jenny was able to be a calm, encouraging presence for her parents.
She was also able to make a trip to Your Town Press where I Remember Running Through the Woods was printed.
1,000 books all boxed up waited on a cart to be taken home.
With the help of her sister, who brought her van to help haul books, Jenny was able to get them all loaded up!
Wow! That’s a lot of books.
And while they’re not perfect, we’re super happy with how they came out and with the story they tell!
We’re planning a big Release Party on Saturday, March 9th, at the opening of the Vintage Watercolor show at Sunnyshore Studio. There are a number of book signing events in the works, and we’re hoping to roll out a more official “release” on this site.
But if you’re interested in getting the book in advance of these events, it is for sale on our Store on this site.
I want to thank everyone who encourages and supports local artists and authors. It is a joy to tell these stories of a boy growing up on an island in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Finally, it was a special joy to give the first gift to my son, Jacob, who helped me so much on this project. The book is, after all, dedicated to him:
“To Jacob, who loves the woods like I do.”
Sincerely, Jason Dorsey
