Description
On Wednesday, April 12 at 7:30pm: acclaimed journalist and hiking enthusiast, Robert Moor; Governor General’s award-winning author of The End of Absence, Michael Harris; and bestselling author Sharon Butala will speak about their new books at the Vancouver Public Library downtown branch.

Throughout the evening:

Robert Moor has written for Harper’s, n+1, New York, and GQ, among other publications. A recipient of the Middlebury Fellowship in Environmental Journalism, he has won multiple awards for his nonfiction writing. He lives in Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia. On Trails is his first book.

Named as one of the 'Best Books of 2016' by the National Post and Amazon, On Trails is a wondrous exploration of how trails help us understand the world. For seven years, Moor travelled the globe by trail, discovering the secrets of the world's master trail-builders and, in the process, found himself asking big, age-old questions about nature and humanity. Filled with findings from philosophy, science and history, On Trails is an insightful as it is joyous.
