Poems from the California Coastal Trail by Jeremy Benson, Poet Laureate of Napa County
In the summer of 2007, current Napa County Poet Laureate Jeremy Benson and his sister April hiked 1200 miles along the coast of California. Jeremy's new chapbook, Footslog, collects poems written during and about the long walk from Crescent City to San Diego. Jeremy will read poems from the chapbook and tell stories from the trip; copies of Footslog will be available for purchase and signing.
Praise for Footslog
"The poems are lovely, clever, and wistful. I love them. And the design is spare and compact - just like something you'd pack on a hiking trip."--Mark Brown, Midland, MI
"I again have experienced the adventure of the motorless open road and am reminded of when I was young." Jim McDonald, Yountville, CA
