A Sideways Look at Clouds @ Herringbone Books in Redmond, OR

Why do clouds get a bad rap? Why is "cloudy" synonymous with "gloomy"? Did you know that an officially "sunny" day in eastern Oregon can include up to 15% cloud cover? Join me in Redmond, Oregon, for a talk, Q&A, and signing of my book from Mountaineers Books, A Sideways Look at Clouds. I'll be sharing some science, humor, and thoughts on following your curiosity.

A Sideways Look at Clouds @ Roundabout Books in Bend

During the 186 days every year Bend, Oregon, is officially "sunny," the sky can be covered by 15% or less by clouds. If the clouds had better PR, this would be a "partly cloudy" day. Learn about the clouds, our fascination with them, and why we don't talk about them more at my talk, Q&A, and book signing. I'll be sharing some science, humor, and thoughts on following your curiosity.
