The Circumference of Home

Kurt Hoelting, $25.00

No longer willing to accept the gaping hole between his convictions about climate change and his lifestyle, Kurt Hoelting embarked on a yearlong experiment to reign in his carbon footprint.The Circumference of Home: One Man's Yearlong Quest for a Radically Local Life tells the story of how he traded in his car and jet travel for a kayak, a bicycle, and his own two feet, exploring a radius of 60 miles from his home on Whidbey Island. Kurt fell back in love with the region of his birth, emerging more fit spiritually as well as physically, andmore hopeful about the future. His journey is an inspiring reminder that what we need really is close at hand, and that the possibility for adventure lies around every bend.

Meet Kurt Hoelting and hear about his adventure in living locally at East West Bookshop at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday June 17.

 

The Guru of Golf

Thomas Moore, $19.95

Humorous and insightful, The Guru of Golf captures the range of emotions associated with golfer's ardent determination, searches for meaning in quiet moments, and reveals the struggles that try our patience, as well as the victories that make golf-and life-worthwhile. This collection of 18 short stories present golf as a metaphor of life itself-endlessly mysterious, joyful and fascinating-while at times frustrating, infuriating and unbearable. Relax and let Thomas Moore lead you on a Zen journey through the "hazards" of life to the miracle of "a hole in one."

 

The Eerie Silence

Paul Davies, $27.00

After almost half a century of scanning the skies in hope of picking up a signal from an alien civilization, astronomers have little to report but an eerie silence-eerie because many scientists are convinced the universe is teeming with life. Could it be, wonders physicist and astrobiologist Paul Davies, that we've been looking in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and in the wrong way? In his mind-expanding book, The Eerie Silence, he refocuses the search, challenging existing ideas of what form an alien intelligence might take, how it might to try to communicate with us, and how we should respond if it does.
