Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Schooner Zodiac Books A'Sail Cruise small cruise wit guests

Kira Jane Buxton, author of Hollow KingdomAll hands on deck! Book your cabin and join Village Books own Kelly Evert and Paul Hanson, and special guest author Kira Jane Buxton on a seabound book-club adventure of a lifetime with the Schooner Zodiac Books A'Sail Cruise setting sail September 12-14th, 2022!

We'll sail during the day, then drop the hook and bring out our books. On the reading list are: Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton (our guest), Crow Planet by Lyanda Lynn Haupt, and My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell. We'll take advantage of the late-summer days to get in three full days of sailing and book discussion amid the gorgeous San Juan Islands, accompanied by a variety of marine life from bald eagles to porpoises and maybe even whales! In between we'll dip into all that the Schooner Zodiac has to offer, from kayaking to hiking to top-notch meals to cocktails on deck at sunset. Then the anchor drops and the books come out! 

It's hard to imagine a better setting to talk about nature, the animals around us, and the zombie apocolypse! This is going to be amazing. Space is limited so book today!

Not able to go on the cruise? Not to worry! You'll still have a chance to meet Kira Jane Buxton in person at the Chuckanut Radio Hour on Wednesday, September 14 in the Hotel Leo's Crystal Ballroom! Tickets available here.
