Indeed. Fabulous book. Wrote a review on my REC blog.
Is this the same Camille Minichino who used to teach at John F. Kennedy University in Orinda?
If so, ask her to contact Dave Givens at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and
Great review! I'm definitely adding this to my reading list. I love stories that tie together parallel timelines and I look forward to seeing how the photography and prose work together.
A correction: The reading on Thursday, Feb. 16, is not at Books Inc. It's at The GLBT History Museum at 4127 18th St. in San Francisco's Castro District. More information: www.glbthistory.org.
Yes, some of the books that are donated are sold on ebay. They are not all given away for free. Rich W, Albany
We should keep in mind that this is a for profit business, not a non-profit. In addition, this business can't be a happy event for local libraries. While Mr. Miles and partner make a profit off the books they sell on ebay, our libraries are going to see fewer donations to their book sales. And this comes at a time when libraries are already struggling, because of funding cutbacks. I'd rather see the proceeds go to the libraries. Rich W, Albany
food on mission street will always sound great but watch out not to miss out on the ones futher down towards daly city papusas are good and the guests are visitors that like to try out central america! dont forget to try the bars if they still have drafts available who wants to eat anyways if there aint Beer! who else is in it for the dancing! cant the beer offer another chance at a good time without having to pretend a date with sara(unc) was great times and suds! dont miss the wharf and does it still offer angels island tours!
N.B. The Young Writers' Camp at Mills College campus has 3 veteran teachers working with its 50+ young authors, sharing inspiration and experience. Tom Dunlap and Susan Lee have been leading YWC camps for more than 3 years at Mills and have extensive experience teaching multiple subjects across grade levels during the school year! It's our collaboration that makes the YWC at Mills such a positive experience. Tom initiated our relationship with Diesel Books and arranges the YWC reading there every summer. I am lucky to be working with such creative, enthusiastic, and inspirational colleagues.
To clarify, I emailed Joel while he was on that trip with his friend Judy to discuss some health concerns. He told me he was too busy with a female journalist who was doing a story on him to talk on the phone or get a fax I wanted to send him. I filed for divorce a few days later. Believe who you want to believe. I believed for far too long.
Zeus and friend? really? http://followtheidiot.com/joining-the-idio…
this is written by a woman who was.. ahem "traveling" with my husband while he was married to his second wife who was undergoing chemo for 12 months. The wife filed for divorce after she found out about their "trip"
I helped Joel edit his book from 2004-2006,even bought the books to help him write his book proposals for various book agents. I know exactly what is truth and what is fiction. I also came up with the title, am credited/thanked for doing so in the book's credits.
Is walking around the Mediterranean really work?
Find out by reading "Hi Ho, Hi Ho It's Off To Work" by Joel Stratte-McClure @
oh yes, buy the book, and then follow the idiot @ 'followtheidiot.com'.
And we were there too! I know who is more believable and it's not HG. Here's some further good reading and a snippet of my day on this epic adventure with an epic adventurer http://followtheidiot.com/joining-the-idio…
Zeus and friend.
and by the by, buy the book--it's a wonderful journey and an intelligent, funny and fascinating read.
harold, if you think it didn't happen you really really were not paying attention. tsk. tsk.
rock on stratte-mclure!
"Harold", as someone who HAS accompanied Joel on several of his outings, I can contest that the printed facts and events are indeed true... You should take a deep breath, and maybe take a hike
Wish I could be there for Joel's talk at Books Inc. - it's sure to be a fun afternoon. I've had the pleasure of MedTrekking with Joel in three countries on two continents, and his book is a fascinating account of his adventures. A great read.
I've never met -- and certainly never MedTrekked with -- Harold G. Perhaps he/she will appear in Berkeley on Sunday.
Joel has a great gift for meeting local people and asking the right questions. I traveled with him in Burma; his solitary meanderings and the reports he brought back deepened the experience for all the rest of us. I value both his insights and his company--and look forward to reading anything he writes.
