New Events and Stephanie Hammet’s Interview with Jack

Posted by on Jun 19, 2020 in News | Comments Off on New Events and Stephanie Hammet’s Interview with Jack

Like everyone else, Jack is hoping that we can emerge from the events of the past 3 months into a more

balanced and equitable world.

 

The paperback edition of The Dreamer and the Doctor has appeared, and Jack will be doing some events this summer and fall in connection with John and Carrie Leiberg.

He will also return to leading field trips around the region.

 

Make sure to check the calendar and the venue as the date approaches for these events, because many sponsors have not yet determined whether they will be virtual or live.

 

In meantime, check out Stephanie Hammet’s interview of Jack in the June 7th issue of the Spokesman-Review
