From Parkplace Books in Kirkland, WA:
Join Parkplace Books and fellow author/friends Tony Angell, David B. Williams, and Mary Ann Gwinn in a tribute evening to one of our most creative authors, gifted storyteller and a remarkably down-to-earth man…with word and song and the release of his last book, Last Bus to Wisdom.
Per Ivan, the evening will be short and to the point…but the world of writing and the influence that Ivan had on it will definitely be presented. Yes, a Q & A is planned.
We will hear some favorite folk music including Pete Seeger, The Weavers, and Joan Baez. And Last Bus to Wisdom will be available for purchase. Pre-orders are suggested. Come join us in a salute to the memory of this accomplished writer and wonderful man.
Ivan’s last request to his readers was to go out and read a good book, take a beautiful hike, or plant a tree. As part of honoring that wish and his memory, we are fundraising to collect money toward the purchase a memorial bench and tree to be placed in a public area in Ivan and Carol’s home area. All monies gathered will go directly toward the bench and tree purchase. Please make checks out to Parkplace Books with notation of Memorial Bench on the check.
