This event is part of North Cascade Institute's Nature of Writing Series

Knocked off her feet after twenty years in nursing, Iris Graville quit her job and convinced her husband and thirteen-year-old twins to move to Stehekin, a remote village in Washington State’s North Cascades. They sought adventure; she yearned for the solitude of this community of eighty-five residents accessible only by boat, floatplane, or hiking. Hiking Naked chronicles Graville’s journey through questions about work and calling as well as how she coped with buying groceries by mail, black bears outside her kitchen window, a forest fire that threatened the valley, and a flood that left the family stranded for three days.

Iris Graville is the author of Hands at Work—Portraits and Profiles of People Who Work with Their Hands, recipient of numerous accolades including a Nautilus Gold Book Award, and BOUNTY—Lopez Island Farmers, Food, and Community. She also serves as publisher of Shark Reef Literary Magazine. Iris lives and writes on Lopez Island, Washington.
