Sideways Launch Party

  • Eagles Ballroom 805 E. 4th Avenue East Olympia, WA, 98506 United States (map)

Join Maria at the Eagles Ballroom to celebrate the publication of A Sideways Look at Clouds, by Mountaineers Books.

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. In A Sideways Look Clouds 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. The launch party will include a presentation/reading followed by Q&A and book sales/signing, fun.

Browsers Books of Olympia will be at the event to sell hot-off-the-press copies of A Sideways Look at Clouds (and also Maria's previous book, Rare Bird). Refreshing beverages and light cloud-themed nibbles will be served. Children welcome.

PARKING: There is free on-street parking on 4th and Pear St. (the most convenient). There are some spaces in the Eagle's Ballroom lot just north off the building off 4th. AND after hours at Always Safe & Lock just north of that. AND after hours in the larger parking lot of the Lottery Administrative HQ across the street.
