 Believe it or not, we have hundreds of kinds of clouds, not just "rain clouds." Learn about nimbostratus (seen through a rainy windshield) and other clouds in A Sideways Look at Clouds.

Don't know much about the clouds but wish you did? After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2006, Olympia nature writer Maria Mudd Ruth realized she knew little to nothing about clouds. Rather than continuing to take them for granted, Maria began to study these shape-shifting natural wonders with curiosity and humor. In A Sideways Look Clouds (Mountaineers Books, September 2017), Maria charts a unique course into the science and meaning of clouds and offers the non-scientist ways to look at, appreciate, and talk about the clouds.

Join Maria for a lively presentation, short reading, gorgeous clouds, and book signing. There might even be a quiz.  Village Books is at 11th and Mill Streets in Fairhaven (south of downtown Bellingham).
